Join Dorothea Mink, professor of fashion design at the University of Arts, Bremen, and Homer Layne for a presentation of their fascinating book on Charles James. Layne—James’s assistant for almost a decade — and Mink analyze the great designer’s remarkable innovations, revealing what made his designs so special, and suggest how designers today can apply James’s principles to their own work.

A book signing will follow the presentation.
