Western Design Conference & Manuel’s State Jacket Collection
Manuel’s renowned State Jacket Collection will re-emerge from storage for the first time in four years at this year’s Western Design Conference.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming – July 12, 2011 –

The Collection, a series of red, white and blue studded jackets that represents each of the 50 states in the nation, debuted for the first time in Nashville’s Frist Center in December of 2005. From there, they made their way to the National Cowgirl Museum in Fort Worth, TX, to the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, OK, and to New York City’s Olympus Fashion Week. The decade-long project’s exhibit has been on hold for the past few years, as Manuel makes minor repairs to the priceless gems.Come check out the jaw-dropping jackets and get your Western on from September 8-11th at the Pavilion at Snow King Resort in Jackson Hole, WY. Day passes are available at the door for $15, or you can click here to learn more about different events and ticket pricing throughout the week.
