1980s OMO Norma Kamali Black Sequin Stretch Jumpsuit w Blue Sequin Pattern at the Back

This is a fun and sexy piece from Normal Kamali. It is part of her OMO (On my Own) label that she formed in 1978 after divorcing her husband. In the eighties she excelled in twisting the idea of athletic wear and fabrications to come up with new innovative pieces that were easy to wear and high on impact. This is an exceptional example of her work during this time period. It is not 100% perfect but it's flaws are small and fixable and it is in otherwise amazing condition. It is a stretch and fit jumpsuit that fits to the body, molding to your figure when you put it on. The front is cut high to the neck and curves around to hook at the back. The back has a large round cut out that leaves your bare skin exposed. The jumpsuit hugs the waist and hips and then the legs are long and lean. They flare out as they reach the bottom for added shape. It is completely covered in hundreds of thousands of sequins. The ones on the front are a black and then on the back the legs are finished in a blue. I laid it out flat so you can see the interesting patterns that has been worked onto the back of the legs. Its only flaw is that it is missing some areas of sequins around the waist, lower bodice and front of the hips. It could be worn as is and just feel a little raw and deconstructed or you could easily replace the sequins. 

Unlined and slips on to wear. Hooks at the back of the neck and at the back strap. Tagged a vintage OMO Small but the fabric does stretch so should accommodate a bit of a range of sizes. The measurements below show the comfortable range while laying flat. Missing sequins on the front and sides. Please see the last three photos after the label shots and the overall shots for the areas of sequin loss. Priced with this in mind
