Thank you for attending RetroFittings 2016!

Check out our Facebook page to see pictures from the event!

For over a decade the Society of St. Vincent de Paul and the University of Cincinnati’s Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP) have partnered to present RetroFittings, an annual fashion show that features the fashion designs of DAAP students.

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