Last night the heavily anticipated, 5th annual DIVAS Shop for Opera shopping event was held at 82 Mercer. Hosted by the New York City Opera, guests got the unique chance to choose from designer and vintage merchandise donated by Zac Posen, Manolo Blahnik, Versace and many more.


The fashion savvy event was chaired by legends like Hamish Bowles, Patricia Field, and Isabel and Ruben Toledo. The Young Patron Co-Chairs were Ashley Melone, Pamela Love, Arden Wohl and Rebecca Taylor.

Attendees like Alex McCord, Simon van Kempen and Robert Verdi enjoyed cocktails while browsing through the beautiful selection of clothing and accessories.

DIVAS Shop for Opera benefits the New York City Opera and is inspired by the fact that art and fashion have merged into one. Art is now fashionable and fashion has become an art form (Lady Gaga, anyone?).
