Donna Karan: Life & Fashion

Donna Karan has built her world-famous brand by concentrating on the everyday needs of women on the go. Karan began her career creating American sportswear at Anne Klein, and in 1985, with the help of husband and business partner Stephan Weiss, Karan founded her own signature label, introducing her landmark "seven easy pieces" concept. Her belief in chic and easy dressing has stayed at the heart of her design philosophy, and has kept her label at the top of the industry for over three decades.
