Charles James is often considered America’s first couturier. His tailored suitings and sculpted gowns were influenced by his Edwardian childhood and each piece was considered a work of art. The 1982 Brooklyn Museum tribute, hosted by Halston, presented some of the lavish ball gowns for which James is best remembered.
