Designers Against Aids

Former fashion journalist Ninette Murk founded the nonprofit organisation Designers Against AIDS (DAA) in 2004 with the aim of raising awareness in the international media by attracting models, designers, musicians and celebrities for their campaigns. Curiously based in Antwerp, DAA are using some of the money from their annual H&M projects and they are renovating a building that will host the (IHARC) International HIV/Aids awareness education centre and their new headquarters. Dazed talks to Murk and Javier Barcala, photographer, creative director, music journalist and the other half of DAA.
