Charles James, who passed away in 1978, had his work in exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, “Charles James: Beyond Fashion.” James’ family sold the brand to Harvey Weinstein, who commented, according to Yahoo News, “Charles James is one of the most incredible couturiers in the history of fashion and this label deserves to be a household name in the same ranks as Chanel, Dior and Oscar de la Renta. There isn’t a single designer in high fashion who wouldn’t name him as a significant influence. We are beyond thrilled to be spearheading the revival of this brand and bringing it back to the world’s finest retailers.”

Weinstein’s wife Georgiana Chapman, who designs for Marchesa, is a creative consultant for the label as well as her business partner Keren Craig and brother Edward Chapman.
