Wit and wisdom from the innovative, influential, and empowering wellness guru and designer Norma Kamali
In her first book, fashion legend Norma Kamali offers readers a stylish, inspiring, and heartfelt handbook for gliding boldly through each of life’s decades with purpose and power. Manifesto, memoir, and essential guide, its pages are informed by 50 years of Kamali’s twists, turns, triumphs, and failures experienced while ï¬nding the courage and conviction to race after her dreams and never look back.
At 75, Kamali looks—and acts—nearly half her age. The secret, she writes, is learning to age with power: Embracing a healthy lifestyle and looking forward to every milestone and the changes they bring, with the realization that reaching one’s potential has no date. With wisdom and wit, Kamali imparts her lessons on authentic beauty, timeless style, career-building, ï¬tness, and health through personal stories, worldly insight, and actionable advice designed to help women of every age create their happiest, healthiest, most successful and fulfilling lives.
“Kamali still retains total control of her fashion line, now in its 53rd year—a rarity in the industry, on both accounts—and just finished a book, to be released in January, that serves as a guide to optimizing women’s emotional and physical health, from puberty to post-menopause. It reflects an ethos that she calls “aging with power.” What that has meant for her, she says, is that for the second half of her life, she decided to live exactly as she pleased.”— Departures
“After decades in an industry obsessed with youth, the designer writes in her new book that ‘you can feel better and be better with age.'"— Wall Street Journal
