Celebrating opera, fashion, and love

Join us for an exciting evening of fashion, opera, and love of all forms at the elegant Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. Guests will experience a unique collaboration of live opera music and fashion design, featuring works by student designers in the fashion program of the Myron E. Ullman, Jr. and the School of Design at the University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. Opera music will be sung by rising young artists from the College-Conservatory of Music, making this a truly remarkable collaboration of the stars of tomorrow. Feel like one of the divas and have your picture taken by acclaimed fashion photographer, Annette Navarro. Enjoy the stunning backdrop of the historic Hall of Mirrors while you sip cocktails and await the love vignette, an immersive opera and fashion experience. The night will continue with dinner in the Pavilion and an after party on the runway.
