Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week NY Spring ’12. Norma Kamali’s 3D Adventure

Summary: If all other presentations looked the same this season, Norma Kamali‘s 3D presentation at Lincoln Center surely stood out. In the David Rubenstein Atrium right across the street, Kamali brought a bit of lively action to the early morning show. Walking in and hearing Imelda Day’s “All For You” blasting on the loudspeakers, brought the mood up in an instance.

Your first question might be, well, what exactly is a 3D presentation? Kamali had a video of women modeling her Spring 2012 collection and dancing to the song. With a slight twist (literally and figuratively) the movie was shown in old-school 3D fashion with the red and blue cat-eye glasses.

The models were dressed in retro styles of gold latex dresses, hot pink fringed pants and long-sleeved backless black sequined gowns and shimmied around each other on screen. Models were also on hand to show the neon laced bodysuits and dresses. It was a sight to see, especially for the legendary Kamali herself.
