June 24: Fashion Design meets downtown Las Vegas – book signing with Ermelinda Manos

Date: June 24, 2017
Time: 1-3 p.m. in the Museum's retail store
Cost: There is no charge to enter the retail store

Lost in Las Vegas, a book compiled by fashion designer and author Ermelinda Manos, showcases famous and some not-so-famous locations in downtown Las Vegas as well as Manos’ own eveningwear line and pieces of her vintage jewelry collection.

Mixing in history and little known stories from Las Vegas’ past, the book includes images of The Mob Museum and more than 20 other sites downtown.

“The process of making this book has been a labor of love for more than two years,” Manos said. “The concept was sparked by my own journey. I wanted to capture the rich Las Vegas history that is often overshadowed by its reputation as the entertainment capital of the world.”

All the locations were captured throughout a four-day photo shoot using local, professional photographers.
