"Everything I do is a matter of heart, body and soul", says Donna Karan, Chief Designer of the international company that bears her name. In fact, Karan credits her feminine instincts for the success of the company she founded in 1984 and which has become one of the largest luxury brands in the world, with a presence across the Americas, Europe and Asia, including the emerging markets.
The Donna Karan Collection was born out of Karan’s intuitive understanding of a woman's needs. It centers on seven easy pieces, interchangeable items that create an entire wardrobe from season to season. This modern system of dressing embodies the ultimate in luxury, comfort and creative expression, with the finest quality fabrics, workmanship and innovation.
As the Collection business grew, Donna Karan International identified new ways to interpret the brand for other parts of its customers’ lives. In 1989, the company launched DKNY, which reflects the attitude and energy of New York City, and is known for soft materials, exceptional comfort, and the lightness of its accessories. Completing the lifestyle approach to design, in 1992 Donna Karan International took on the world of beauty, launching best-selling fragrances for women and men. The company also entered into other successful licensing agreements, such as watches, hosiery, home, intimate apparel, and eyewear.
Donna Karan International’s brands are brought alive to customers through capturing the pace and essence of New York City that is reflected in innovative advertising and marketing, fashion shows and its retail presence. The Collection and DKNY brands are sold at the finest retailers worldwide as well as through Donna Karan International’s own, growing store network and its award-winning website, donnakaran.com – an unparalleled vision for authentic New York style and a modern system of dressing that balances the practical with the desirable.
The Donna Karan New York Collection is a modern system of dressing created to appeal to women's senses on every level. Founded on an intuitive understanding of a woman's needs and desires, this exclusive collection embodies the ultimate in luxury, sensuality, comfort and creative expression. Always utilizing the finest quality fabrics, workmanship and technological innovation.
Donna Karan International is part of LVMH Moët Hennessy - Louis Vuitton, the world’s leading luxury goods group.
