Reviews
"[A] magisterial monograph."--Laura Jacobs, Wall Street Journal
"The . . . catalog, Charles James: Beyond Fashion, is as sumptuous as [James'] work."--Chicago Tribune
"This luscious volume took me into another world--a world where gowns are architecture and gossamer and dreams and drop-dead sexy all at once."--Library Journal
"Charles James: Beyond Fashion . . . by The Costume Institute's Harold Koda and Jan Glier Reeder, demonstrates just how inspiring James was, and how much 'beyond' clothes that influence goes."--Women's Wear Daily
"A major retrospective of his work. A well-dressed coffee-table book to match. Yes, the inventor of American couture is back."--Dallas Morning News
"One of the most beautiful books ever printed."--Leonard Lopate, WNYC
