Charles James in Modern Weekly, China

Dear Shaded Viewers,

As you know the Charles James Beyond Fashion exhibition is currently at the Metropolitan Museum of Art at the Costume Institute's Anna Wintour Costume Center. Charles James was the inspiration, decades ago, for my becoming a fashion designer. I was happy to give a few words to the Modern Weekly for their piece on the master.
