Donna Karan, a pioneer. A woman designing for women. Modern woman—forward-thinking, confident, and self-assured—succeeding in the world, while pulling off the balancing act of life. Responding and reacting to real needs, needs she knew because they were also her own, Karan launched Seven Easy Pieces with her first collection in 1984. As Donna’s own life evolved, she was confronted with a new demand: a teenage daughter raiding her closet. And so came the next generation New Yorker: DKNY.
Since its inception in 1989, DKNY has been synonymous with New York, inspired by the energy and attitude of the city. Drawing on Karan’s original principle of designing for the woman who never knew where the day would take her, DKNY has transformed into a global lifestyle powerhouse, granting everything you need to live a New York life—wherever that may be.
More than 30 years later, Donna Karan is one of the most iconic names in American fashion. Her iconic designs and innovative ideas remain as relevant as ever, now reimagined in a modern-day Donna Karan New York and the next-generation counterpart, DKNY.
