Last Friday's masquerade ball at Chop Shop was filled with interesting costumes and characters. Sure, there were the usual masks seen at balls, but there were also more creative coverings.

Posted By on Mon, Jun 30, 2014 at 4:19 PM

The event, presented by Alesia Thomas Foundation, is geared towards honoring and helping folks who have lost their hair due to illnesses. Stylists showcased new hair trends and designers unveiled new fashions that were then modeled on the runway. The survivors catwalk featured women with and without hair. Bianca Golden (a former America's Next Top Model contestant and Project Runway star) co-hosted and starred in the event. Proceeds help with the production of wigs made of human hair and head accessories. (Photos by Mert Jones)
