Charles James


Images:A gown from the May07- Feb08 Charles James Exhibition, Kent State University

I love the graphic paneling on this Charles James Gown; a bold, simple effect that belies its complex construction. While the remarkable silhouette is obvious at any distance, I'd be interested in seeing some of the finer details. If you have close-up images of the gown or stole pictured below plz send them on!
