Victorian Lawn Party and Fashion Show
Belle's Tea Cottage Reno, NV
Saturday, June 4, 2005
Fashions from the Victorian Era (1837 – 1901) were showcased in this Lawn Party and Fashion Show. The guests were greeted by women and men dressed at the height of Victorian fashion. The guests were then shown to their tables and served refreshments of iced tea and scones by the tea house staff. The models mingled with the guests, talked to them, and answered questions until it was time for the show to start. The classical music playing in the background was silenced and Lady Carpenter began introducing the models and the fashions they were wearing. As Lady Carpenter talked, the models walked in between all the tables to give every one of the guests a close-up view of the stunning outfits. After the fashion show, the guests were encouraged to stay and visit with one another and the models, or even try their hand at the popular Victorian game of croquet.
