The world of fashion is buzzing with the name “Charles James.” The Metropolitan Museum of Art will soon open an exhibition featuring the design genius, and I so wish I could attend. For those of us obsessed with vintage fashion, all the recent fuss is no surprise.
For an ironic twist, my boss will be in
New York at the end of the month and,
although I have made it very clear he will not be forgiven if he misses the opportunity to attend the exhibit, he continues to make excuses.
What a louse! Since he frequents museums wherever and whenever he travels, I am especially peeved.
He loves architecture, so I have been pushing the fact that Charles James was a very architectural designer. (I don’t think he believed me.)
But this afternoon, there was an email with a link to a New York Times article in my inbox that he had come across entitled “Architectural Underpinnings of Cinderella.” Well, well, well . . . I guess I wasn’t making that up, Mr. Boss Man! With Diller, Scofidio, & Renfro as the exhibition designers, I might just convince him to go and report back to me!
With my mind on formal attire these days (what with Sewing Indie Month and all!), I simply cannot wait for the Met Gala that will kick off the exhibition.
And have you heard that Zac Posen will be dressing Dita von Teese?!? The combination of Charles James, Zac Posen, and Dita von Teese promises to be absolutely spectacular! I cannot wait to see the scrumptious outfit he is designing for his date . . . only a few more days till all is revealed!
