Some photos from an awesome presentation by Michaele Haynes at the Witte Museum about Fiesta gowns (this is apparently a big deal San Antonio thing that has been going on since the late 19th century) from last week’s Costume Society conference!

This first set is from this year’s Coronation, the Court of Captivating Islands.  One is Jamaica, one is the Bahamas.


This is from a recent exhibition at the Witte, which shows a gown from each decade.  The one from the 50s (far left) is my favourite (surprise surprise), and it reminded me of something…
