As part of the 2016-2017 “Niwot, Now & Then” Niwot Historical Society lecture series, a vintage fashion show organized by Susie Reisser was presented Thursday evening, April 27, at the Left Hand Grange Hall in Niwot. The event was well attended and the crowd was treated to a skillfully narrated fashion show and exquisite examples of men’s and ladies’ fashion from several periods of the 20th century.

Dance troupe Watch Your Step!, under the direction of Dorothy Vernon, gave a fashion show with clothing from the eras. They wore clothing representative of styles worn at the turn of the 20th century through the 1960s and ranging from elegant evening attire to humorous “hippie” ensembles.

The clothing had been collected by the troupe through purchases and gifts, and each item was thoroughly researched and discussed in detail throughout this entertaining presentation. In addition to the 16 live models, several outfits belonging to Niwot Historical Society members were on display.
