A few weekends ago Fisher Group visited New York City and all it’s splendor. Take a look at what we saw.

Now until August 10th, 2014 you can see, “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” exhibit. Charles James is known as “America’s First Couturier”. He is ┬áconsidered a master of cutting and is known for his structured aesthetic. The exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art explores Jame’s design process (something we love here at Fisher Group), specifically ┬áhis use of sculpture. scientific, and mathematical approaches to construct ball gowns as well as innovative tailoring.

Here are a few of his designs on display.
