Norma Kamali: Empowering Women Through Fashion


Style icon and designer Norma Kamali comes to 92YTribeca next month with a panel of special guests (to be announced) to discuss empowerment through couture.

As we all know, fashion is not only decorative, but used as an extension of our natural bodies as markers of status and gender roles. So it only seems fitting that Kamali, who designed the unforgettable one-piece red bathing suit worn by Farah Fawcett in the film Charlie’s Angels (now in the Smithsonian collection), leads a conversation on how to give more depth to surface.

TALKS | “HEY BABY”: EMPOWERING WOMEN THROUGH FASHION

Designer Norma Kamali breaks the sound barrier of the silent model in the photo, and on the runway. Join some of the women considered the most beautiful in the world in an open discussion that will show that all women are more than the way they look.

Norma Kamali has been a fashion designer since 1967 and feels her role is to empower women through clothing. Self-esteem and image are deeper issues and in her interviews with women, their stories enlighten and inspire other women to better understand how to achieve empowerment. Norma has been interviewing women around the world; the last group for her SiriusXM radio show included NYC mayoral candidate Christine Quinn, Cindy Lauper, Joan Jett, Korean female comedian Margaret Cho, political reporter Mica Bryzinski and Gloria Steinem.

OK, here is how Fashion Bug explained the size, " The sizes XL and OX are in fact different.

Fashion Goes in Cycles

They say that fashion goes in cycles.  What is in fashion this year will be out of fashion next year. However, clothing that may have been in style ten years ago, can potentially be next season smashing trend.  Due to the the cyclical nature of the apparel industry it is important for designers as well as consumers to monitor past styles as well as currently trending designs.  One way to do this would be to occasionally view old fashion articles in magazines, newspapers, websites, and obviously on blogs such as this one.
