Fashion In History
'Swan' Dress
Charles James
1949
The Charles James holdings include an extraordinary collection of sewn muslins and flat patterns that represent James’ design process from original concept to the finished garment. At his behest, three of his most devoted clients, Millicent Huttleston Rogers, Mrs. John (Dominique) de Menil, and Mrs. William Randolph (Austine) Hearst, Jr., along with several others, donated this supporting material along with the actual garments. In some cases, the garments are accompanied by materials that represent all of James’ design phases-two flat patterns (paper and muslin), and two sewn muslins (half and full).
