Reprising our recent post regarding #PhantomFashion30, we want you to know it is not too late to catch up with the newly minted masks:

Behind the mask is a long-running– at 30+ years, in fact, the longest running– Broadway musical.

In celebration of that milestone, which occurred for The Phantom of the Opera on this past January 26th, and for the benefit of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, 30 well-loved designers are reinterpreting the iconic mask, originally designed for the production by Maria Björnson and realized by milliner Rodney Gordon.
