The Victorian Garden of the Wildwood Historic Center will be the site of a historic fashion show at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 29.
“50 Years of Fashion” will feature about 30 costumes that highlight the period from 1860 to 1910, said Gail Wurtele, Wildwood manager.
“The show is going to be fun and informational,” said Wurtele, who added that the show will be emceed by Tammy Partsch and Sharon Hersemann.
Bill Hayes has volunteered to escort the ladies during the show, said Wurtele.
She said Donna Kruse of the Morton-James Public Library will stage manage the event, and Dean Shissler of the Nebraska City Museum Association has provided tremendous help in the show’s preparation.
Wildwood docents, who will be the show’s models, have donated their time and talents by researching and making costumes, said Wurtele.
The free show is part of a year-long celebration of Wildwood’s sesquicentennial. The Jasper Ware family moved into the Wildwood historic home in 1869.
Refreshments will follow the show in the Wildwood Art Barn.
The Wildwood Historic Center is located at 420 Steinhart Park Rd. Call 402-873-6340.
In the event of rain, the show will relocate to the Kimmel Gallery of the Morton-James Public Library, 923 1st Corso.
