Student designers will show off their work at RetroFittings, an annual fashion show that is a partnership between the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning.

Students from DAAP shop at St. Vincent de Paul thrift stores with $15 each, turning items they find into runway fashions.  

The event also will include a boutique of top-tier clothing from St. Vincent de Paul’s thrift stores, silent auction, raffle baskets and more. Kara Sewell of FOX19 Now will preside over a live auction.

Tickets are $100 (VIP), $60 and $25 (students). Proceeds help support St. Vincent de Paul programs.
