Description: From 1864 to 1964 there were drastic changes in fashion. Women’s dress went from hoop skirts requiring a minimum 7 yards of fabric in 1864 to micro-mini’s in 1964 requiring a scant 3/4 yards of fabric to create. Men’s fashion experienced no less drastic a change, from the military cut of the Civil War through the Zoot Suit Riots of the 1940′s to the Mod trend of the 1960′s. The Great Basin Costume Society will walk you through the fashionable changes showing how political and economic challenges contributed to these dramatic changes in just 100 years of Wearing History. The Wearing History: 100 Years of Fashion in Nevada exhibit will be on display at the A an Art Gallery. 40 East 4th Street (Old RTC Bus Station) in Downtown Reno from Thursday to Friday from July 12 to July 27.
