Event Details

Everyone had so much fun last year sharing their costume interpretations of the years 1830 to 1870 that it is becoming a tradition. This year’s theme is “I’m on my way!”. Participants will pick a destination in their period attire and tell everyone where they are heading. Is it to the beach? A funeral? Hiking a mountain? Dancing at a ball? Heading to bed for a good night’s sleep? Or maybe journeying into the pages of a period novel? We can’t wait to see their creativity at this unique fashion show.

The Corsets & Cravats Conference runs August 2-4, 2019 in Downtown Newberry. While the fashion show event is included in the full conference registration, the community is welcome to attend this special event for a small fee. Vendors will be available all weekend in the Opera House lobby.
