Picture of the Month – March 2003
March 1st, Lori and I presented a dozen outfits from her collection for a fashion show at the Ingomar Club. The first garment, a dress with two matching bodices from 1840 was too small to present on a live model, so it was shown on a dress form. The remain outfits, dating from the 1860s to the 1930s were worn by friends who have helped us document the clothes for Lori’s Vintage Clothing web site. After the show was over, we gathered all the women together in the front parlour of the Carson Mansion for a group picture. It was really quite stunning to see nearly a hundred years of fashion in one grouping, especially since the newest garment was over 70 years old!
