Western fashions will dominate the runway this spring
For the first time at Couture, fashions from Rodeo Tailor Nudie Cohn will be featured in the show. Nudie is well known for his work with some of the entertainment industries elite, including Roy Rogers, John Lennon, John Wayne, Steve McQueen, Johnny Cash, Cher, Elton John, Liberace, Eric Clapton and the rock band America. However, Nudie is probably best known for the $10,000 gold suite he designed for Elvis Presley, which rocketed him to stardom and solidified his place in the fashion industry. Unfortunately Nudie passed away in 1984. Today Nudie’s granddaughter Jamie Lee carries on his tradition of crafting one-of-a-kind Western clothing featuring ornate leatherwork, silverwork, embroidery, and eye-catching rhinestones, resulting in the best rodeo tailoring money can buy. Designer Amy Hoban, whose Western line “Californiawear” has been featured in the fashion pages of Cowboys & Indians magazine, will also be featured in the show, debuting pieces from her new collection, including retro cowgirl outfits and cowboy shirts. Couture attendees will delight in live entertainment by singer/songwriter Katy Moffatt, whose two Columbia albums “Katy” and “Kissin in the California Sun” have garnered rave reviews from Rolling Stone and Newsweek magazines. Moffatt, a Santa Clarita resident, was recently dubbed one of America’s most honest and affecting singer-songwriters and her Southwest Spirit is sure to perfectly complement the evening. To help commemorate the evening, Cowboy Couture t-shirts will available, with all proceeds benefiting local charities. Sponsors of the year’s Cowboy Couture event include: the Magazine of Santa Clarita, All Corked Up, All American Marketing, McGregor-Shott and Westfield Shopping Center. So whether you’re looking for a hot new pair of Cowboy boots, a prairie skirt, patchwork shirt or just a little Western flair for your next night out, don’t miss Cowboy Couture. Tickets are $20 per person and are available online at www.cowboyfestival.org .
