James Galanos spent the early years of his fashion career under the tutelage of Hattie Carnegie, costume designer Jean Louis, and Parisian couturier Robert Piguet. His experiences with these master designers informed his luxurious-but-not-ostentations designs. Throughout his entire career, Galanos did not once expand his brand, eschewing a mass-market paycheck. Among his clientele were Grace Kelly, Marlene Dietrich, Rosalind Russell, Diana Ross, and First Lady Nancy Reagan. Exclusive and opulent, Galanos is known for making the finest, most elegant garments.
