Fashion Designer Norma Kamali Talks About Staying True to Yourself on Living in Style

Posted by

On Tuesday's "Living in Style," we were joined by iconic Fashion Designer and Creator of the Wellness Café, Norma Kamali. She invented designs such as the Sleeping Bag Coat, a collection created from parachutes, and packable, multi-use clothing, which can be worn up to 30 different ways -- not to mention the world-famous red swim suit worn by Farrah Fawcett. Norma’s swimwear has influenced an entire industry each season since its start in 1974. She dished with Robert and Judy about who her mentors were and staying true to herself in an industry that’s always changing. Click below to listen to our favorite clips from the show.
