Norma Kamali began her business in 1967 as a shop owner making styles in her sample room, and selling from her retail store. Her goal from that first day as an entrepreneur up until today was to have the freedom to be creative, and to use that creativity to design styles for women to make them feel good. Kamali is not just a designer.
She is an innovator. An inventor. The Sleeping Bag Coat, the High Heeled Sneaker and the Parachute Collection are all iconic Kamali looks. In 1980, she was the first to present the innovative Sweats Collection and the Active Sportswear Collection as core parts of her brand, where they remain today.
Her influential Swimwear is recognised globally as highly directional and has remained an influence in the market for decades. The KAMALIKULTURE collection of affordable styles are all easy care, require no dry cleaning and are great for travel and the modern lifestyle.
