Fashion Icons: Donna Karan


Donna Karan Pre-Fall 2012, wrote Bloginity, “reaffirmed Karan’s place among America’s most forward-thinking designers.”

“...a ’50s-inspired full skirt and cotton cross blouse,” remarked The New York Times’ T Magazine, “remind us how simple and sexy a cinched waist can be.”

There’s no question Donna Karan, chief designer of the international company that bears her name, is an iconic designer. “Everything I do is a matter of heart, body and soul,” she says. “For me, designing is an expression of who I am as a woman, with all the complications, feelings and emotions.”

Karan also founded the Urban Zen Foundation in 2007, the culmination of Karan’s philanthropic efforts. Explains Karan, “I have founded the Urban Zen initiative to create a working structure for advancing wellness, preserving culture and empowering children. These are causes that mean the world to me.”
