The following appears courtesy of our friends at the Vintage Fashion Guild: Norma Kamali (b. 1945), a native New Yorker, graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in 1964 with a degree in fashion illustration. Four years later she opened a shop and designed for Kamali Ltd for ten years. Her early works were typical late 1960s: appliquéd leather, lizard and snakeskin. In the 1970s her design style evolved and she began making draped, shirred, garments with alternative fabrics. The jumpsuit made from silk parachute material and her famous “sleeping bag” coat put her on the fashion design “A” list. Other fabrics, such as sweat suit material that had previously been reserved for athletic wear, were used by Kamali in high-fashion pieces.
