    • After Shows

Norma Kamali steps Behind The Rope. Living Legend, Fashion Icon Norma Kamali. Norma is here to chat about her new book, “ I Am Invincible”, which chronicles her several decade long career in Fashion and the business and life wisdom she has gained throughout the years. Norma opens up about some of the highlights of her career such the Sleeping Bag Coat, the high heeled sneaker, the before its time eBay partnership and her CFDA Lifetime Achievement award. We also talk about her one piece red bathing suit worn by Farrah Fawcett in the iconic 1976 poster as well as the bathing suit worn by Whitney Houston on the back cover of her 1985 debut album. We break down the relationship between celebrity and designer, the celebs Norma has worked with, and who she would love to design for. Norma discusses her involvement with Bravo’s Project Runway, Heidi Klum, Michael Kors, Tim Gunn, the show’s most notorious winner Christian Siriano, and whether shows like Project Runway “work” anymore. We analyze the changes in the fashion industry throughout the years, the current crop of Hollywood’s best and worst dressed, and the current crop of hot models such as Gigi and Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner. With Awards Season just wrapped, we chat about the current state of the red carpet, the decreased ratings across the board for Awards shows, and just what does Norma think about accepting an award in full glam and fashion in your living room. Finally, we chat about the future of fashion as well as Norma’s future - engaged at 75. As laid out in her stellar book, “I Am Invincible”, Norma explains how we are all on our own timeline, one size does not fit all, and just how she maintains her youthful looks and positive attitude no matter what decade in life she has been in. True words to live by!
