Norma Kamali on Living Your Best Life at Every Age
By Tatiana Bido
Her new book I Am Invincible may sound like a declaration of her own 50-year history in an industry with a short attention span, but 75-year-old legendary fashion designer Norma Kamali penned the original manuscript as a gift to a friend on her 50th birthday. “I gave her a small leather-bound Moleskine notebook with my ‘50 Tips on Turning 50!’ I was amazed at the reaction. I received texts, emails and follow-up calls from many of the party guests asking me to make my book available.” That book has now evolved into a gift for all women with advice and encouragement for conquering every stage of life. “This is my gift to you,” she writes. “Sleep, diet and exercise are my ‘Three Pillars.’” Here, she looks back on how those three pillars have helped her remain effortlessly ageless, decade after decade.
