Charles James produced some of the most memorable garments ever made. He began his design career in the 1930s. It peaked between the late 1940s and mid- 1950s, when his scarce and highly original gowns were sought after by society's most prominent women
Days Gone By
Evening dress designed by Charles James (1906-1978). He was well known as a Prom/Ball dress designer. About the dress: long and spectacular gowns, cage skirt inside. In this time with a dress like this it seem like he didn't really care about the New look lol. -photo taken by Eliot Elisofo - I pinned this pic because it bring me back to 1900s my favorite decade =))
