1980s Gray Norma Kamali Jersey Dress & Shawl Set


This spectacular eighties dress with its matching shawl from Norma Kamali is not only super sexy but it gives you lots of styling options and is instantly recognizable as from her. It is made from her signature slinky, lightweight jersey that she favors to this day. It is the type of fabric that is so easy to wear and care for and drapes amazingly. The dress is in a design that she still uses in variations in current collections but I feel these older, original pieces are that much stronger and really are the basis of her entire signature look. It has a dramatic draped top, strong shoulders and a fitted draped hip that you can wear high or low, over the skirt that comes to a point at the font and back and sits higher on each side. I have shown it at full length but that gathered cinching in at the waist does allow you to wear it further up on the hip to shorten the length as well. It has a matching square of fabric that you can use to style multiple ways. It is so rare to find these earlier examples of her work in a complete set like this and this particular one is fabulous. Excellent condition. Unlined, light stretch matte jersey in a deep slate gray. There is elastic that runs through the waist and hips. Well constructed. Padded shoulders that are held in place by velcro so are removable if you wish to have a softer, more rounded shoulder. Dress Shoulders: no defined Bust: open Waist: 11-17" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 19-24" flat across from side seam to side seam Bodice: 21" from neck to dropped waist when not worn higher on the hip Skirt: 32.5" from dropped waist to hem Shawl 56" x 58" Modern Sizing Equivalent: MED-LRG This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
