Event Time: Retrofittings

Don't you love the thrill of coming across an amazing shirt/dress/necklace in the most unsuspecting place?  Well so do the design students who make Retrofitting's possible!

Retrofittings is an annual event held by St. Vincent de Paul's thrift stores where 50 students from DAAP use the clothing, accessories and anything else they can find the SVDP thrift stores to design looks that rival those found in your favorite department store!

Not only is this event sure to pull a huge crowd, it is also an awesome way for Cincinnati to continue to nurture, support and showcase the creativity of up-and-coming designers and the fashion industry in our city as a whole! 

Krombholz Jewelers are also designing a fabulous piece of jewelry designed from items found at SVDP which will be up for auction at the event! You can check out the interview and sneak peak with Cincy Chic here! 

The event kicks off on October 13th at 6:00pm at the Hilton Netherland Plaza.  Hor d'oeuvers, cocktails, an auction, raffle and boutique sale (swoon!) will be open prior to the fashion show, hosted by Jen Dalton! 

If you love fashion, or simply want to support DAAP, St. Vincent de Paul and the city of Cincinnati, you can purchase your tickets here
