Charles James’ Most Ladylike Vintage Designs


With a strangely mathematical approach to design and no real dressmaking training, Charles James still manages to hold an undeniable cult status amongst the ranks of couture fashion. The Anglo-American designer and his inventive fashion even earned him the unofficial title of “America’s First Couturier.” With no set classification or characterization, James’ dresses ranged from boundary-pushing to elegantly timeless. His designs and approach continue to inspire and inform modern day fashion, as is evident by the 2014 Met Gala exhibit “Charles James: Beyond Fashion.” To celebrate what would have been his 112th birthday, we’ve rounded up our favorite vintage Charles James finds.
