Our next season's fashion show will be on April 8th, 2024!
On Monday, February 13th, 2023, Pittsburgh joined us for an evening of uninhibited fashion.
Pittsburgh Opera partnered with Skye Douglass, House of Couture Designs and Pulchra Intimates on a unique fashion experience that explored the elegance of accessible luxury. With silken operatic voices adding dramatic dimensions to these sleek and scandalous designs, Laced/Unlaced was a scintillating runway experience unlike any other.
We thank all our amazing partners this year--including our fashion contributors plus Studio Booth and Mindful Hospitality Group--for creating this SOLD OUT event. Laced/Unlaced wowed a full capacity crowd of 275 filled the Bitz Opera Factory’, and raised over $50K in support of opera in Pittsburgh.
