Donna Karan Celebrates New York in Style


Donna Karan New York 30th Anniversary fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Fashion designer Donna Karan says of all of the exotic locales she has visited, “the art in New York is just as wonderful, so why not celebrate the art of New York?” Her designs, which appear on the runway during Fashion Week, reflect urban chic with eccentricity, color, flair and a vibrant energy. Characteristic are tall hats, intricate braids and bold designs. Hats are towering and braids descend down the backs of the models. The bra is a focus of the 2015 collection, with Karan commenting that “the bra is the new bodysuit” demonstrated by star model Karlie Kloss in the nylon stretch organza bra. Kendall Jenner, half-sister of Kim Kardashian, also modeled some hot items.

Sitting in the front row was actress Bernadette Peters, who commented, “The thing about Donna’s clothes is they are on the runway, and a lot of things look good on the runway, but when you put them on, they are so wearable, and they make you feel really great. They’re always a little sexy, you know?”

Donna Karan got her start as an assistant designer for Anne Klein in the 1960s. She was born Donna Ivy Faske to Jewish parents and married Mark Karan in the early 70s, had a daughter and divorced. She later married Stephen Weiss who died of lung cancer in 2001.
