“Wearing History: 150 Years of Nevada Fashion” Opens Friday!

Here’s one for the ladies local to Reno (or surrounding areas)…

The Great Basin Costume Society is mounting its first costume exhibition during both Reno’s famous Artown month, and this year’s Nevada 150th Anniversary celebrations.

The exhibit will feature clothing from 1864 – 1964, with a mix vintage pieces and items handmade by members of the Great Basin Costume Society. On display will be everything from hooped and bustled gowns, Victorian underpinnings, to turn-of-the-century ballgowns, 1920s flapper frocks, and 1960s mod mini dresses. …And just to spice things up, an original early 20th century perming machine.

The opening night “Jazz Age” party is this Friday, July 11th, 7 – 9 pm, and is open to the public. The exhibit will be on show Thursday – Sunday, 12 – 4 pm, through August 3rd, at A an Art Gallery, Downtown Reno.
