There are few museums in the world that so well-known and loved, that they develop a nickname.
Known to most as “The Met”, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is the
largest art museum in the United States, with a permanent collection
inclusive of two million pieces; from Ancient Egypt, right up to modern
times. And it doesn’t just include paintings – there are also historic
fashion displays within its walls, too.
Charles James was known as “America’s First Couturier”, and was renowned
for his highly structured aesthetic and many famous silhouettes that
remain in our fashions today. His dresses in particular are timelessly
elegant and beautiful; this Beyond Fashion Hardcover Journal showcases them
spectacularly, showing a scene of fashionable ladies taking tea in a
lavish room. It’s the perfect way to enjoy James’ gorgeous fashion every day.
