Evening Dress, Charles James (American, born Great Britain, 1906–1978): 1936, American, silk, metal. "...An early piece, James experiments with loose drapery effect, atypical for the period of clinging bias-cut dresses, for Mrs. Harrison Williams, an important client. Drapery points on front he uses throughout career with different fabrics and degrees of stiffening. The sculpting through seaming at torso is also signature James."
