Charles James: Beyond Fashion

So If you’ve seen my recent post about the Hollywood Costume exhibit you can guess that I’m a museum junkie.  One of my all time favorite museums is the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.  From May 8th- August 10th 2014, the Met will showcase about 100 designs along with sketches, clothing patterns and swatches by one of America’s first couturiers, Charles James.  He originally became famous in the 40’s and is well known for his complex designs and redefining the norms of dress-making in the 50’s.  Be sure to check out the short video on the museum’s website that features some of his designs!
