Welcome to Wellness Confidential, our quick-fire interview series where we ask hard-hitting (okay, entertaining) wellness questions, lightning round-style.
This week we’re quizzing Norma Kamali, the iconic fashion designer who was all about athleisure before there was even a term for chic activewear and stylish layering pieces for the gym, beach, or anywhere in between.

The one place I’d never wear yoga pants: [I’ve got] no rules about clothing!
The one wellness trend you’ll never see me try: I am pretty discriminating, but I never say never….
If sugar was a superfood, my diet would consist of: Sugar can never be a superfood, even in fiction.
The last time I used my oven: I eat mostly raw so… [it’s been] at least five years.
I never make a smoothie without adding: Olive oil.
If I were a fruit or vegetable, I’d be: An apple. An apple a day keeps the doctor away!

Most people probably don’t know this about me, but: I never went to Studio 54 and I don’t drink or do drugs!
