Charles James: Beyond Fashion

By Harold Koda and Jan Glier Reeder

The Museum's Spring 2014 Costume Institute exhibition catalogue pays tribute to the designer Charles James, a master at sculpting fabric for the female form. James's strikingly original designs included intricate ball gowns worn by members of high society in New York and Europe in the 1940s and 1950s. New photography of his spectacular dresses, vintage photographs, patterns, and sketches are included in the Museum's elegant volume. An illustrated chronology of James's life describes his magnetic personality, his unorthodox design processes, and his famous supporters, including Salvador Dal, Elsa Schiaparelli, Christian Dior, and Gypsy Rose Lee.
