Anyone who has crossed paths with Norma Kamali over the course of her fortysomething-year career can tell you that the woman has her own way of doing things, whether it’s her history of tussling with the unions or embracing social media years before designers half her age. Fall was no exception.
Kamali presented in her 56th Street store in New York, where dozens of 8-foot-tall foam cutout models had been installed. Not only did she shoot the whole thing in a single day, using two girls, with no overtime, but she personally cut every single pattern for every single stitch of clothing shown, just to prove she could.
