‘Rhinestones, Rodeo and Retro Style: Vintage Glamour’

In this program, the Cowgirls Historical Foundation showcases its members’ stunning private collection of vintage clothing from the likes of Rodeo Ben, Nathan Turk (aka “The Tailor to Hollywood”), Nudie Cohn (aka “Nudie the Rodeo Tailor,” “Dior of the Sagebrush” and “The Original Rhinestone Cowboy”), and Manuel Cuevas. Each of these designers fused the influences of their native land with the emerging culture of the American West, creating spectacular costumes and couture in the process. The designers’ elaborately embroidered, one-of-a-kind costumes were favored by celebrities that ranged from Roy Rogers, Dale Evans and Glen Campbell to the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Jim Morrison and the Beach Boys.
