CHARLES JAMES* Beyond Fashion* at the MET

CHARLES JAMES : Beyond Fashion at the Costume Institute in the Metropolitan Museum of Art………a stellar show…….now thru August 10, 2014.

P1190577

This retrospective of Charles reveals the artist as interested in visual spectacle and extremes. His ball gowns are voluptuous……..bustle-like forms……..but they move like soft walking sculptures.

His innovative shapes are a high form of eroticism.
