Goldstein loans garments

The Goldstein Museum of Design has loaned two Charles James garments to Kent State Museum for an exhibition entitled Charles James, running through February 17, 2008. Charles James was a brilliant and enigmatic American designer known for his sculptural forms. The Goldstein has loaned a black silk James cocktail dress and a black satin evening coat with bright yellow lining. The dress dates from the early 1950s, while the coat is from 1947.
