1980s Norma Kamali OMO Jersey Dress

The fashion world was having a movement towards minimalism these days - there is an almost utilitarian feel in some of the recent pieces - this piece captures that feel but adds a sexy spin. There is also a strong trend towards everything 1970s right now so this, this late 1970s, early eighties strapless jersey dress in a brilliant red from American designer Norma Kamali is the perfect combination of the two looks. I am a huge fan of Kamali's works and have had the pleasure of interviewing her so have a special love for her pieces. I died a little when I saw this one! Its definitively her - simple, but striking, the fit impeccable and the color perfect. The strapless bodice is gathered and fits like a glove well past the waist. The jersey skirt flares out from there and there are miles of fabric is that skirt! Really well done and the photos don't do it full justice at all! Excellent condition! Item# DD562
