Today, someone left a comment and set me straight:
HELLO PEOPLE!!!! THESE ARE NORMA'S FAMOUS PARACHUTE CLOTHES MADE FROM ACTUAL ARMY PARACHUTES.WELL. In that case! Dearest Norma, I am sorry for the confusion. Your models did not in fact teleport/time travel from the '88 apartment as I once believed, they actually PARACHUTED!!!
HER SIMILAR PARACHUTE DESIGNS ARE ON DISPLAY AT THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART IN NY..
