To Do in NYC: Charles James at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
If you have nothing to do this weekend I suggest you take a few hours and visit the Met. The museum is hosting an exhibition of the Anglo-American couturier Charles James and his gorgeous work. I won’t be going this week but I’m hoping to see it during Museum Mile, next week on Tuesday evening. I’m excited to James’s work, learn about his process and about his mathematical approach to designing couture ball gowns! The exhibit is open through August 10th so you have a bit of time to get over there. But I’ve been hearing so much about it I can’t put it off any longer! What do you have planned this weekend?
