James Galanos: Documentary Video "Galanos by Galanos"

In 1996, a retrospective exhibition "Galanos" of the life works of James Galanos was shown by the Western Reserve Historical Society in Cleveland, Ohio, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. It featured a wide range of his fashions, from his early career through the later pieces.

As part of the exhibition a half hour documentary, "Galanos by Galanos", was produced that featured an interview with Galanos who shares his design process from concept through final gown.

The catalog book for this show is another worthwhile feature produced by this exhibition.  "Galanos" by Barry Bradley, published in 1996 includes the entire show, with a full length photo and closer view of each piece.
