Wearing History: Opening Night Speakeasy Party

The Great Basin Costume Society walks you through Nevada’s fashionable past with a fascinating display of vintage and handmade clothing spanning 100 years. Progressing through time GBCS members showcase their historical costumes recounting tales of Nevada’s role in the Civil War, her connection to the Titanic sinking, her early approval of Women’s right to vote, and Reno’s connection to Levi Strauss. It is an exhibit that every Nevadan must experience.

Dress in your best flapper finery and bootlegger suits and celebrate the grand opening of the Wearing History: 100 Years of Fashion in Nevada clothing exhibit. With cocktail in hand, wander through handmade and vintage clothing starting with the birth of Nevada in 1864 through the modern age of 1964.
