Although fashion has sometimes been seen as anti-feminist, the cut of a top or the flash of a thigh can empower women to decide for themselves what it means to be female. No one knows this better than Norma Kamali and Christene Barberich.
Kamali, creator of such iconic styles as the sleeping bag coat and “athleisure,” Kamali has emerged as one of the most influential women in fashion in the last five decades. Barberich is the co-founder and editor-in-chief of Refinery29, the Webby award-winning women’s lifestyle media company. At this program, Kamali and Barberich will join Museum curator Sarah Seidman for an intimate conversation about the impact of feminism on fashion, past and present.
