The Telluride AIDS Benefit (TAB) presents its annual fashion shows, the TAB XXVI ‘Sneak Peek’ Fashion Show on Thursday, February 28 and The TAB XXVI Gala Fashion Show on March 2, 2019, both at 8:00 p.m. at the Telluride Conference Center in Mountain Village.

Featuring local models and international designer fashions, TAB fashion show productions are best described as New York Fashion Week meets Cirque de Soleil. Funds raised through ticket sales and auction packages support HIV and AIDS education, advocacy and clinical care in Colorado and Africa.

TAB events kicked off early with a Student Fashion Show on 2.21.19 followed by TAB Fashion Week events including: Sneak Peek & Gala Fashion Shows with auction packages (featuring Burning Man, Rolling Stones, Villas in Provence and Hawaii, and Exclusive Wine Buys among others), free HIV rapid testing in Telluride, A designer sample sale, after party featuring New York-based DJ Salinger and a poetry reading by Madelyn Garner. Special guests include Mark Harrington, featured in the acclaimed film “How To Survive A Plague.”

The Telluride AIDS Benefit fights HIV and AIDS by raising awareness and generating financial support for prevention programs and client care through its six beneficiaries in Colorado and Africa. TAB aims to keep AIDS relevant in every generation and to cultivate a healthy and stigma­‐free society.

The Telluride AIDS Benefit is a non­‐profit organization dedicated to fighting HIV and AIDS until the goal of zero new infections in the state of Colorado, across the country and then the world is achieved. Visit their website for more information about this wonderful cause.
