Still feeling the incredible vibes and the soreness courtesy of the goddess Norma Kamali!

We wanted to do something new and different with one of our designers, while also staying true to our brand. If you don’t know Norma Kamali, you may recognize her studded swim often spotted on the Kardashians and Chrissy Teigen, but aside from dressing celebs for their lavish vacations, Norma Kamali really stresses the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

We care a lot about that here at Big Drop NYC, so I thought to myself, "What’s more refreshing than a morning barre class?" Inspired by Norma Kamali on a daily basis, I could not think of a better person to lead a class of strong, independent women - especially for an activity that she has been practicing for over 10 years! Barre is really the perfect workout - you get to tone your muscles with the rigor of pilates while exploring the aerobics of ballet. When you’re living a fast-paced NYC life, self—care is so important.

Last month, we partnered with Norma Kamali, Alicia Weihl (the master trainer of Physique 57), Juice Served Here, and VOSS water, as well as local fashion and fitness influencers for a mat barre class led by Norma above her retail store and showroom in Midtown. Everyone had such a blast, and definitely got their workout in! Alicia is so much fun, and can really get any crowd going! And of course there was pampering too! After the event, guests enjoyed manicures and massages provided by PRIV beauty- one of the best and easiest apps! Check it out ASAP if you haven’t already.

Take a look at a video of the event below. For anyone who hasn’t tried barre before - it’s a MUST! Not to mention, Norma Kamali’s new activewear collection is beyond ;).
