Tampa Museum of Art launching Norma Kamali fashion exhibition

Joanna Robotham, left, curator of modern and contemporary art, and Emily McVeigh, exhibitions and collections manager, work on the Tampa Museum of Art’s latest exhibit on Thursday afternoon. The first fashion exhibition of its kind at the Tampa Museum of Art, “Norma Kamali — CITY: Fashion + Art + Culture” celebrates the 70-year-old Kamali’s prolific career spanning five decades of incredible innovations. Pieces such as the Sleeping Bag Coats and iconic designs from her Parachute, Sweats, and Swimwear collections show her passionate commitment to women’s health, fitness and beauty. A selection of Kamali’s fashion films will be on view along with the designer’s “Glamazons,” her larger-than-life fashion cutouts. The exhibit opens today and runs through Sept. 25. Tampa Museum of Art is at 120 W Gasparilla Plaza on the Riverwalk.
