A little fashion lesson: who was Charles James?

CharlesJames_hero

So ladies: how did you like looking at all the beautiful Met Ball dresses? You were probably just as excited as we were, wishing your name was Suki, Stella or Beyoncé, and pondering about what you would wear to a party this size.
Reason those gals got it right was partly because of Anna Wintours wish to have a Charles James dresscode, which totally brought out the best in them. But ehm, who wás Charles James exactly? Let’s be honest here, his name did not ring a bell immediately, so we’re glad that The Costume Institute is hosting an exhibit on the British designer (we knew that).
And rightly too, because while the designer might not be a household name like, say, Yves Saint Laurent, he was a huge influential in 40’ and ’50 New York, designing the most amazing ball gowns. James was close friends with Cecil Beaton, was highly respected by Christian Dior and was often dubbed a great friend of the French Couture.
The exhibition covers James’ entire career, including a collection of 100 pieces with all of his major work. Think tulle, think satin, think bustles and bosoms. Or just think Met Ball. [EH]

Ode to Abraham

You don’t really think about it, but great minds like Christian Dior, Hubert de Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent and Cristóbal Balenciaga didn’t come up with all of their great work by themselves. They had great minds accompanying them, working with them, creating with them.
One of those helpers was the Swiss textile firm Abraham, a company that was specialized in printing silks and delivered exclusive fabrics to these designers. Today, the Abraham archives are housed at the Swiss National Museum in Zurich, but from March 13th till August 11th, Belgian fashion museum MoMu in Antwerp will host a collection of colourful textile prints along with couture silhouettes by all of the designers mentioned above. Go see the exhibition if you can, and combine the trip with some serious fabric shopping on your own. Hey, great minds need help too right? [EH]
