James reopened his New York stores in 1945 and began selling original dresses to Lord and Taylor, Neiman-Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and other stores. In 1947 he showed his designs in Paris to rave reviews. Virginia Pope, the New York Times fashion editor who covered the show, praised him as offering the most sensational designs of the show. In 1950 he was awarded the American Fashion Critics Award (Coty) for his "great mystery of color and artistry of draping." Throughout the 1950s and 1960s he continued selling his original designs to major department stores.
