Yigal Azrouël, designer
Three words that describe your Fall '12 collection: Effortless, chic, something a bit masculine. The woman I'm designing for is very strong.
What are your three fashion essentials? I need to chill and relax. I think the most important thing is to enjoy what I'm doing and to enjoy Fashion Week. Everyone is running around, they forget what it's all about. It's a celebration. For me, I'm just really trying to enjoy it all.
What's your favorite Winter comfort food? I just discovered that I'm gluten-intolerant so I'm really missing all the bread and pasta! Instead, I eat a lot of meat. I love meat.
How are you planning to de-stress and relax after NYFW? I go surfing, it's the best thing to do. I surf in Costa Rica, which is where I'm building my house. I was just there for New Year's and I'm looking forward to going back. It's a great way to de-stress and work out.
