International fashion label joins fight against HIV and AIDS

Vienna/Bregenz, May 8, 2014. The international fashion label Wolford is
supporting the fight against HIV and AIDS as official partner of the 22nd Life
Ball in Vienna on 31 May 2014. "Wolford fascinates women all over the world
with its sensual fashion, innovative ideas and sustainable quality. As a
women's brand, we stand for high expectations and practised social
responsibility. These values coincide with those of AIDS LIFE. We are
consciously involved because the organisation does important educational work
for women", says Axel Dreher, board spokesman for Wolford AG.

This year's ball features a creative highlight sponsored by Wolford: the Style
Contest on the evening of 31 May with a selection of the most extravagant looks
chosen by an international VIP jury, followed by the crowning of the Life Ball
Queen 2014. The winner can look forward to not only a free holiday, but will
also be recognised with an award: a unique sculpture donated by Wolford and
individually manufactured by the Vorarlberg-based artists NONOS.

This year, Wolford is stylishly and subtly dressing 100 débutantes in a classic
Wolford body. Furthermore, 73 exclusive gift vouchers will be awaiting the
lucky winners of the tombola.

"Wolford is a strong, international brand which perfectly matches with us. We
are pleased to have the fashion label back on board as a partner and a
sponsor", states AIDS LIFE founder and Life Ball CEO Gery Keszler. Wolford AG
supported the Life Ball back in 1996-1998.
