"This dress is by Norma Kamali. You could call it a bat dress. You can either do it as a dress and make it very formal or do what I did and dress it down a bit with a pair of pants.
I’ve been interested in fashion since I was a very young girl. I used to make my own clothes and I’m also a seamstress. I’ve never been to college, never taken a course in fashion, but I learned from experience. My store was in Garden City for 26 years until my lease expired recently and I moved to Wayland Square. I just needed a change.
My closet has almost all black clothing. I just always feel good in black and a lot of customers do, too. The pieces are timeless and some of them I’ve had for many years. I’m not really a trendy person but your hair and accessories can update a basic piece.
