Thanks to your support, over $169,000 was raised to help neighbors in need in 2017!  

Every year, St. Vincent de Paul - Cincinnati and the University of Cincinnati’s Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP) partner to present RetroFittings, a fashion show that features the fashion designs of DAAP students. Students from DAAP shop in any of the seven St. Vincent de Paul Thrift stores with a budget of $15.00, turning items they find in the stores into runway fashion.

Together, St. Vincent de Paul and DAAP have continued to team up to showcase the original fashions of more than 70 talented sophomore students from the University of Cincinnati’s top-ranked fashion program for one very special night.  All proceeds from the event support the many programs of St. Vincent de Paul - Cincinnati.

This innovative evening supports the mission of St. Vincent de Paul and proves that a good cause never goes out of style!
