Behind the Texas Rose Festival Costumes

Texas Rose Festival designer

TYLER, TX - Every year thousands come to Tyler to take part in the decades-old event, the Texas Rose Festival. For over thirty years, Winn Morton has designed the costumes that are featured in the iconic event. 

Winn Morton designed the set and the over 60 costumes featured in the 2017, Celestial Wonders themed Rose Festival.

Designing isn't new to him, he has designed for sets for circuses including Ringling Bros., and even Broadway shows.

He designed costumes for ice shows, balls and even wedding dresses, but even with all of the extravagant events and shows he's designed for, he says this is his favorite to showcase his wild and over-the-top ideas. 

It takes a few days of designing and months of constructing the memorable costumes for the iconic three day event.
