Far and above Genius compared with most couturiere's, James escalated couture into Art; he didn't even care if. .In the world of American High Fashion, particularly the rare realm of Haute Couture, Charles James is the gold standard.
Far and above Genius compared with most couturiere's, James escalated couture into Art; he didn't even care if the gown was ever really worn, just that it existed was enough for him. He was a one and only, and a true Artist, and he didn't stop or start with garments, but like Mies van der Rohe, the architect, he designed the room to "show it off", the Whole -Nine -Yards approach.
A friend recently viewed the Charles James exhibit at the Chicago History Museum and gave me the exhibition catalog. James was still alive when I moved to Chicago but I never heard of him until now. The picture of just one amazing dress in the exhibit was enough to send me googling to discover whether there was more Charles James material. This book, THE GENIUS OF CHARLES JAMES, is what I chose to begin with. It was pricey but fortunately I found a nicely-priced gently-used copy that I received very quickly, well protected for shipping
