Popped over to Norma Kamali‘s 5th Ave store yesterday at lunch time. Turns out there’s an amazing Wellness Café there that I had never known about! (NYC’s just too big to keep track of everything, but that’s what PR people are for, right?)
Kamali is obsessed with olive oil and has her own line of oils and beauty products, made from olives straight from her own orchards.
The café has pretty displays of good stuff like Himalayan sea salts, rock salts & bath salts…
Best of all, there was an Organic Avenue juice counter, with free samples! OA’s juices are completely natural, organic and amazingly fresh — I think I’m about to get obsessed with them. Kamali drinks them every day and told me they’ve changed her life. She opened the wellness counter beacuse she wants to share her discoveries in holistic health, beauty and nutrition. Quote of the day, Norma Kamali on juicing: “you know, fashion people would rather starve than do something healthy like this.”
