This is an iconic vintage 2 piece dress from Norma Kamali from the 1980's. Norma Kamali was the first designer to so cleverly use sweatshirt or fleece fabric in modern chic pieces. This 2 piece dress is one of her early 1980's designs and it includes a purple skirt with an elastic waist and slit with snaps, and the matching purple long sleeved top, with Norma's signature shoulder pads, and snaps up the front. The top has a wide waistband that can be snapped or left un-snapped as shown in the first photograph. The outfit is labeled size petite, but since the 1980's were known for oversized fits, I would estimate it to be a size 4/6. Our mannequin is a modern day US size 2 and the skirt is just a little too large for her. This outfit is in overall very good condition, the only things to mention are; the labels are frayed as shown in the photos, and there are a few loose stitches in the waist band.
