1970s Norma Kamali White Jersey Gown
This OMO by Norma Kamali gown is a jewel! Supermodel length and made from yards and yards of pristine white, fluid jersey! It gives a strong nod to the turn of the century in style and has an amazing goddess feel. The skirt is a full 54" in length and cascades form the empire waist in a flowing, floating cascade of fabric. This is gathered just under the bust in an elastic waist and then a short, sexy bodice sits above that. The neckline is also elastic so can be worn on or off the shoulders. Each should poufs out from the neck and then turns into a skinny sleeve of fabric that is worn bunched up along the arm as they are each equally as long. The gown is heavy to pick up because of how much fabric was used but is shockingly light and airy feeling when on because of the fine grade jersey used. This is Kamali at her best and it is in museum quality, seemingly unworn condition.

Unlined and slips over the head with elastic at the empire waist and the neckline.

The bottom hem is just cut to finish - you were meant to cut to the desired length.
