The History Of The “Suiting the Sound: The Rodeo Tailors Who Made Country Stars Shine Brighter”
This exhibit is displayed in honor of the designers of the clothes worn by Westerners at the time. The designers known as rodeo tailors were renowned for bringing the cowboy rhinestone fashion to the fore with their couture designs.
The look was prominent between the 1940s and 50s by tailors of Jewish origins who settled in Europe around that time. They migrated to America and became successful at their trade by tuning into the cowboy fashion and western look trend of those years.
Country Music Hall Of Fame fans will know how the fashion statements of rodeo designers such as Ben ” Rodeo Ben” Lichtenstein, Nudie Cohn, Nathan Turk are still relevant in today’s fashion world. The designs of Cohn were kept alive by his proteges of Mexican origins, Jaime Castaneda, and Manuel Cuevas.
The design has evolved in modern times, with costumes with the same vintage western design background been worn by artists such as Lil Nas X, Post Malone, Jenny Lewis, Margo Price, and Charley Crockett.
The Country Music Hall Of Fame souvenir shows attractively colored stage wears, designing tools, photographs, and recordings of events in the video. Antiques include a costume designed by Nathan Turk and worn by Rose Maddox of the Maddox Brothers & Rose band, a rhinestoned jacket worn by Roseanne Cash that was designed by Manuel, and a pair of boots worn by Hank Thompson during the making of the video for his 1948 hit song, Humpty Dumpty Heart. The boots were designed by an embroiderer working under Nudie Cohn, Viola Grae.
