Regarding Norma Kamali. In the late 1970s, Kamali began working with sweater-shirting, a fabric that was then used only for athletics and sporting wear. She made jackets, skirts, and narrow and baggy trousers. Her "rah-rah" skirts were the first short skirts to sell in a volume since the mini skirt of the early 1960s.
