About the Proceeds

Join us for St. Vincent de Paul’s 18th annual RetroFittings—a fashion show featuring the designs of University of Cincinnati’s Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP) program! Students from DAAP shop in any of the seven St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Stores with a budget of $50, turning items they find in the stores into runway fashion.

Together, St. Vincent de Paul and DAAP have teamed up to showcase the original fashions of 15 talented sophomore students from the University of Cincinnati’s top-ranked fashion program for one very special night. RetroFittings also features an on-site boutique with items from our thrift stores, as well as silent and live auctions and raffles. All proceeds from the event support the many programs of St. Vincent de Paul, helping our neighbors in need.

RetroFittings proves that a good cause never goes out of style—join us for a memorable and impactful evening!
