ELEGANZA (est. 1994) was founded twenty-eight years ago under Harvard’s undergraduate cultural production organization, Black C.A.S.T. The event began as a small fashion show with a mission rooted in redefining beauty and aesthetic style on campus.
Since then, Eleganza has grown to be one of Harvard’s most anticipated events. It is a cornerstone of Harvard’s entertainment scene. Each April, we have a sold-out crowd of more than 1,500 attendees that draws interest from students throughout the Boston area.
The highly anticipated night is an opportunity for students to celebrate fashion, dance, music, and expression through our innovative show. We also emphasize our commitment to the community by donating all profits to organizations in Boston and across the country that support justice for the diverse communities we hope to highlight through our show.
