Designers, to your divas. Not the stylists, editors, press reps, and buyers that title usually goes to—we’re talking the real, shake-the-rafters, operatic kind. The New York City Opera is partnering with a handful of fashion’s best again this year for Divas Shop the Opera, when donated finery (both vintage and Spring ’10 pieces) from designers are sold at a shopping event to benefit the company and its costume department. This year, several designers have also contributed sketches of the classic characters of the opera, from Aida to Tosca. We’ve got your first look at sketches from Victoria Bartlett (whose take on Puccini’s Turandot is above), Jason Wu, Peter Som, Behnaz Sarafpour, and Narciso Rodriguez, which go on view on the auction block at the annual event on May 20.
