What Is a Pickleball Dress?
By Emilia Petrarca
Like many Americans, the fashion designer Norma Kamali has often found herself in the company of people who, as she put it, are “obsessed with pickleball and do nothing but talk about pickleball.” Ms. Kamali, 77, said that some players have even tried to recruit her, so to speak. “They’ll be like, ‘Oh, you’re a designer, you should design a pickleball dress!’”
By last year, Ms. Kamali had heard enough pleas for pickleball dresses that she decided to name a piece she had already designed for her spring 2023 collection the “Pickleball Dress.”
