CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) lifetime achievement award winner Norma Kamali made this iconic dress as part of her famous collection of recycled parachutes gifted to her by Halston's Victor Hugo. "Victor dropped the parachute and said, 'This is my gift to you’”. Morphew acquired this gown from Norma Kamili herself. Norma told us "We were cleaning out my warehouse and there was a door behind one of the racks. Inside we found all these boxes we had forgotten about filled with my old pieces!" She recalled how the parachute gift from Victor Hugo was pretty fabulous, and that she had so much fun making designs with it throughout all of these years since."
