Calvin Klein's Creative Design Director: TM Enlivens Intuition

In a recent interview in BoF (Business of Fashion) magazine.  Mr Zucchelli was asked: How do you keep your intuitions fresh?  He said, 'TM.  Intuition is something everybody has and meditation is a great way to develop it.  I was given a mantra 20 years ago.  I sit down and close my eyes....for 20 minutes.  It's a tool.  I would do it even if I cultivated tomatoes because I love it!'
Three years after Italo Zucchelli joined Calvin Klein in 2000, Klein himself stepped down and handpicked Zucchelli as his successor as the company's creative design director of menswear. Since then Zucchelli has seen nothing but success under the brand, twice being nominated as the CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year and winning in 2009. It is said that Mr. Zucchelli maintains the simplicity and integrity of the roots of the Calvin Klein brand while bringing a uniquely European touch of
style in a sophisticated and effortless manner.

Cardiologist Dr César Molina on Transcendental Meditation

“I believe that there’s no better medicine than TM. It’s a potent intervention because it easily brings about a state of restful alertness, or Transcendental Consciousness, in which all physiologic processes are in balance. The cardiovascular system is very sensitive to this balance, which is why TM is so effective in the treatment of cardiovascular disorders."
Dr. César Molina learned the Transcendental Meditation technique during his senior year in high school in Puerto Rico in 1972. He says that his 40 years of TM experience has been “enlightening.”
