If you haven't yet made your way to the Metropolitan Museum of Art yet this summer, now would be a good time to do so. Charles James: Beyond Fashion, now on display at the Anna Wintour Costume Center, will close down after Sunday afternoon. The dreamy exhibit features structural, high-fashion ball gowns and more from the little-known American designer.
If you're already booked for the weekend, no worries—there's plenty of exhibits to look forward to for next season—for one, the Costume Institute is debuting its first fall show in seven years, dedicated to the fashion of mourning. The Brooklyn Museum will feature some of the craziest high heels ever made, and the Museum at FIT will explore the relationship between fashion and dance.
