The 2023 DAAP Fashion Show

As part of the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning's annual DAAPworks showcase, the iconic DAAP Fashion Show, celebrated its 70th live runway show on Friday, April 28th in a sensational new venue. MegaCorp Pavillion, one of 3 venues of its kind in the world, opened its doors to the hundreds of people celebrating the Class of ’23 as their collections premiere. 

The Experience

Antonio Lopez | Charles James Designs '72


Unique creations from our 48 exceptionally talented senior designers will be showcased at MegaCorp Pavillion, an amazing indoor/outdoor concert venue adjacent to Newport on the Levy in northern Kentucky, minutes from downtown Cincinnati. 

The audience experience replicated that of international Fashion Weeks in the style capitals of the world, with hundreds of distinctive garments passing within a few feet of admiring gazes in a breathtaking and intimate runway experience. Wonderful models, specialized music, and an energy only found in environments like this, was enjoyed by all that attend.
