Cincy Chic is hosting its annual Cocktails & Couture event this Friday, September 13.

Cincy Chic will host its annual Cocktails & Couture event on September 13 from 6-9 pm at the Cincinnati Art Museum. 

The event encourages attendees to learn history through vintage fashion vignettes and cocktail tastings, which are mixed by Molly Wellmann. It also includes access into the Cincinnati Art Museum’s “Kimono: Refashioning Contemporary Style” exhibition.

“Each year for this event, we have three vignettes that feature a special cocktails and fashion pieces that represent three different eras in history,” says Cincy Chic publisher Amy Scalia. “It’s a really fun way to learn history through what people were wearing and sipping at that time.”

The three eras and featured cocktails at this year’s event include: 1890 Daiquiri, 1930 Twentieth Century, 1870 Alabazam. “We will also have a bonus displayed near the vignettes of a 1960’s paper dress on loan to us from Designer Items & More,” explains Scalia. “It’s an extremely special and fascinating piece we’re excited for attendees to see in person.”

A variety of pop-up shops will be featured during the first half of the event, and then pinnacle of the evening will be a high-end designer vintage fashion show by Montgomery-based Designer Items & More.
