"Evening Ensemble" by Norman Norell
More pieces from Norman Norell
A stunning gown by Charles James - the detailing was so intricate on this one!
Here is a preliminary sketch of his design.
Charles James was known for being a "sculptor" of dresses; these are indicative of his style! Don't they remind you of building architecture?
The evening jacket on the right, designed by Elsa Schiparelli, reminds me of my favorite coat!

More Micol Fontana pieces; these all are from the mid 50s!
There was so much more to see and I couldn't get pictures of it all because there were quite a few people enjoying the exhibit. There are some great photos of other dresses featured on the Brooklyn Museum website; be sure to have a look! And of course, if you're in the BK - go see for yourself!
