pure, clean & simple

Noted fashion designer Norma Kamali has opened a Wellness Cafe inside her New York City boutique.  Who is Norma Kamali and what is she know for, you ask???  Only THE MOST ICONIC bathing suit ever!!!  She designed that infamous red one-piece bathing suit in the worldly-know Farrah Fawcett swimsuit shot (the bathing suit has been recently donated to the Smithsonian)!!!  In 2010 she was also honored as one of WWD's "100 Designers Who Shaped Fashion."  Keeping in line with her design philosophy to promote self-esteem and wellness, she offers her favorite wellness products, foods and solutions in her new Cafe.  Everything offered is all organic and natural, from her olive oil products (she swears by it) to her tooth soap.  The design of the Cafe reflects her philosophy as well - pure, clean and simple.  A pure white color palette, clean geometric lines and a simple de-cluttered atmosphere.
