TBT: An Ode to Charles James

TBT-throw-back-thursday

This TBT is all about Charles James, (considered America’s first couturier!).  We could stare at these highly structured lovelies for days.  And you’re gonna want to get that black and white number replicated into a wedding dress.  We love this photo of Austine Hearst casually wearing  it while probably rubbing elbows with all of NYC’s 1950’s upper crust.

Psst…The Metropolitan Museum of art is paying homage to Charles James with an exhibit May 8th-August 10th.  Go see these gowns in the flesh!
