Fashion Legend Norma Kamali on the Objectification of Women

Yeah, so I'm a little late to this party, but so what. At least I found it.

When I was growing up Norma Kamali was one of the first women to make it big in the fashion industry. She was a powerhouse.  Fashion, like most industries, had always been dominated by men except for the rare instances when the likes of a Coco Chanel arose. What was unusual about Kamali's designs however, is that she bucked the trend by allowing women to be stylish and comfortable at the same time.

Presently, this fashion legend spends plenty of time talking about the objectification of women in society. She tries to empower women through her new organization  STOP OBJECTIFICATION.

Here is an interview she did with Buzzfeed. HERE

Her new every-women line: KamaliKulture


My take on this issue in general: Cultural relativism and the Decline of Societal Decency
