Winter ended a day early this year, as Pittsburgh Opera Headquarters in the Strip District hosts A Song of Thrones, a Pittsburgh Opera fashion event, on March 19th.

Based on the popular medieval fantasy epic “Game of Thrones,” A Song of Thrones captured the drama of the immensely popular television show, while spotlighting costuming and music from Pittsburgh Opera, as well as high-end fashions by designer Diana Misetic of Shadyside fashion studio & boutique Little Black Dress, who is known for having an unparalleled eye for texture and silhouette.

The fashion show featured a clash between simple, neutral pieces and colorful, dramatic ensembles to illustrate the everyday struggle between fantasy and reality. For a dramatic finishing touch, hair and makeup stylings were created by Studio BOOTH.

Misetic custom-made cutting edge couture for the event, which was worn by professional models. Her pieces were paired with opera wardrobe from Pittsburgh Opera’s costume vault reminiscent of King’s Landing, Winterfell, and beyond, modeled by Pittsburgh Opera’s Resident Artists.

Studio BOOTH partnered with jewelry artists Deborah Phillips and Murial Spitz to provide unique pieces for A Song of Thrones. These pieces, mostly composed of metal, large stones and eye-catching raw materials, were available for purchase for guests looking to take a piece of the show home with them. In addition, Studio Booth stylist Deanna Machi, who is a Kevin Murphy Educator of the Year, demoed Kevin Murphy styling products to show guests how to replicate the A Song of Thrones looks. These products were also available for purchase. In both cases, 15% of the proceeds went to Pittsburgh Opera.

Hosted by FRIENDS of Pittsburgh Opera, the fashion show started at 7:30 on Monday, March 19th. The evening also featured a cocktail reception from 6:30 – 7:30, including hors d'oeuvres from Black Radish Kitchen such as spinach and ricotta fritters with lemon aioli, baguettes with sliced flank steak and garlic aioli, and seared tuna on gluten-free corn tortilla with salsa verde. Guests mingled and posed for pictures with the costumed Resident Artists after the show.
