Mark your calendars for Saturday, Sept. 24, to attend the fourth Oh, My Bonnets and Bustles! Fashion Show from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Governor’s Mansion grounds.

Tickets for $25 and are available at the Nevada State Museum store. Only 100 tickets will be sold. Proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Nevada State Museum.

The event will highlight women’s fashions from the 1850s through the early 20th century. The fashions come from the collection of Tina Davis-Hersey and Carolyn Davis, in addition to costumes created by members of the Great Basin Costume Society.

The collection includes original outfits as well as costumes made from historic patterns. The show will follow a series of vignettes of daily Victorian life, from dressing in the morning to dancing in the evening.

A high tea reception with refreshments and silent auction will follow the show. Guests are encouraged to dress in period costume for the event.
