To label Norma Kamali a fashion designer is an understatement…entrepreneur is a more apt word.

Many labels and designers tout themselves as lifestyles brands---but no one we can think of ---embodies this more than Norma Kamali ---

And she shares her lifestyle with us via her Wellness Café---located in her 11 West 56th Street multi-storied townhouse that serves as headquarters for all things Kamali.

PLUS: A new series of webisodes…launched yesterday---that feature Kamali[s conversations with healers, fitness. Beauty and body experts, and artists---

Yesterday at the Museum of Modern Art Film Theater (in front of a SRO crowd), we saw a lively clip featuring Ms. Kamali interviewing the people that embody the designer’s wellness MO…with their particular bons mots highlighted across the screen…

Like Dance/Choreographer legend Twlya Tharp, Vegan Chef Matteo who serves up a delicious Williamsburg based dining experience, Four Square Vegan, and Massage Therapist Nancy Shaw on the healing benefits of massage.

We got a laugh from acupuncturist and spiritual healer Abdi Assadi  who opined that one can be “enlightened but still be a jackass.”


A series of presentations at the designer’s Wellness Café featuring Tea Tasting and demo on the healing wonders of green tea, one-on-one cooking demos, all about massage …
