Once more, presenting Charles James.  Just look at all that gorgeous fabric, creative construction and drapery.  And try to imagine all the techniques that don't meet the eye but hold the gowns in sculpture like position.  Truly a fashion genius.

*At this time, if one of these gowns - the most expensive in the world when created in the 1950s - was up for auction, it might fetch somewhere in the six figures. Touching would be out of the question for Ciwt (or most) - financially or, for conservation purposes, in fact.
