I drink…lots of water during the day, wine or vodka with club soda and fresh lime juice at night.
My favorite dinner is…Artichokes made any which way, a fresh chopped salad which always includes some type of olive and chicken fajitas without the tortilla. Does this still count as a fajita?

Interview with Fortune Dushey
Do you shop for activewear for your clients? What are your favorite stores/sites?
I typically shop with clients for casual, event attire and vacation pieces. My go to favorite shops for activewear are Bandier and I always pick up pieces from the boutique at Equinox where I workout. My favorite on line sites are Carbon 38 and Alo.
Do you see interest in activewear diminishing as more people are working out at home (streaming, peloton, etc)?
No, I think people may exercise at home but they still work out at their favorite haunts because there is a certain energy at group classes that just gets you pumped up. Regardless, people want to look effortlessly fashionable in their workout wear.
What are your favorite activewear trends right now and coming up for spring/summer?
I like to keep things classic and basic. I rotate between different color leggings and inspirational tee’s. Sometimes I will add in a print legging, my all time favorite being a palm tree print from The Upside. When I’m feeling fancy, I will knot my tee in the front or back. I’m not sure if this is a trend, but there a tons of crop tee’s and sweatshirts out there which I adore on days that my abs cooperate. Though this is still trending, you will never see me in a mesh or ripped legging.
Do you have any creative ways that you like to incorporate activewear into your everyday looks?
Not really – I leave active wear for the gym plus I have too many options in my closet that I need to amortize!
