Students from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning are out to prove that thrift store threads can be runway ready with a little needle, thread and creative vision.

Fifteen DAAP sophomores were given $50 to use at any local St. Vincent de Paul thrift store and asked to transform their purchases into unique fashion lewks.

These upcycled outfits will be trotted down the runway in a special fashion show to benefit SVDP, with a bonus boutique featuring thrifted items, as well as silent and live auctions.

6-9:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 17. $60; $100 VIP; $40 YP. Music Hall, 1241 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine, retrofittings.org
