About a month ago, a friend of mine, Tana, was asked to put on a fashion show for a local tea room, The St. James Tearoom. The request was to cover fashion from Roman through the 1920s in about 1 hour. Tana said yes she would be happy to host such a large fashion show and then promptly called me and other costume type friends for help. Tana and I founded a group locally called Head-to-Toe Costume Society of New Mexico to encourage all kinds of costume making and wearing. The lovely people in this group supplied outfits to supplement what Tana and I had made ourselves and also provided most of the models.

I have tried to be selective in the photos I share, but if anyone is interested the whole set of images can be seen here.
We were dressing in some of the small rooms in the back and almost all of the models had to change! Tana was asked to limit the number of models so only those of us with outfits that took way too long to change into were spared. A few people even had to wear their Victorian corsets under other outfits just due to lack of time. Here is the rack ready for people to grab their round 2 of clothing.
