Phildadelphia: "Project Runway" Alum Launches T-Shirt Designs at AIDS Benefit

January 24, 2013

Mondo Guerra, fashion designer and AIDS advocate, will reveal new T-shirt designs to benefit the Philadelphia nonprofit organization Action AIDS at the Fashion in Action function on Valentine's Day at the Hotel Palomar. He will also dress models in three one-of-a kind designs that will be auctioned at the event. Guerra revealed that he was HIV-positive during the "Project Runway" competition in 2010. He stated that he had no idea that it would result in his working for AIDS organizations, but he was inspired by the outpouring of love and support he received.

Funds raised by the T-shirts will support Dining Out for Life, the annual restaurant fundraiser that began in 1991 and has expanded to more than 60 cities. Dining Out expects approximately 200 local restaurants to participate in this year's event on April 26. The restaurants will donate a third of the day's receipts to Action AIDS. Tickets for Fashion in Action are available at and information about Dining Out for Life is available at
