A Healthy Dose of Donna Karan

By  August 06, 2013

Ageless, timeless, and peerless, Donna Karan is the doyenne of New York fashion. Before the juice craze hit Manhattan, Karan was concocting her own – and the results speak for themselves. Take a page from her book for a healthier, happier season. Namaste!

Q:

How do you stay fit?

 
A:

Yoga every morning! I take my yoga class every day – not only yoga, but it's nutrition, juicing. I mean, I've been doing yoga since I was 18 – that's the how bodysuits started. Yeah, that's how I got into bodysuits, and I'm still wearing bodysuits.

 
Q:

What stands out from your first collection?

 
A:

The bodysuits.

 
Q:

What's your favorite New York City neighborhood?

 
A:

Greenwich and Charles streets, where Urban Zen is. It's where the Village is, and it's where my late husband's studio is.

 
Q:

What are five things always in your fridge?

 
A:

Green juice, water, salad, anything to do with vegetables, anything green. Green, green, green – I love green.

 
Q:

Do you have any hidden talents?

 
A:

This is not my hidden talent, but I wish it was: I would love to be a dancer like Martha Graham and a singer like Barbra. Other than that, I'd be a designer instead.

 
Q:

Where do you like to shop?

 
A:

That's why I'm a designer – it's easier to make my own clothes!
