Designers Dress Up for a Good Cause at the NYDC Masquerade Ball 2010

[tweetmeme source=”@SA_Baxter” only_single=false design community showed its true talent last night at NYDC’s 5th Annual Masquerade Ball. Creative costumes, good food and a packed dance floor were just some of the highlights of the evening.  SA Baxter was proud to be a platinum sponsor of the event to benefit Alpha Workshops, the only not-for-profit organization in the country that trains and employs people living with HIV/AIDS in the decorative arts. We thought we would share just  few of the clever costume our designer friends wore.
