Charles James at The Met

This summer, for the low, low price of whatever you wanted to donate and the judgement of the cashier  you could wander among Charles James’ collection of female-less feminine silhouettes a The Met. These dresses stood like statues.  An ode to a sartorial stature and attention to construction that gets lost in the day of fads and Forever 21. This is not throwaway fashion.

Which is why his collection, workroom notes and dress forms were showcased in The Met from May until August. If you missed the regal showcase, scroll on for the highlights.
