Donna Karan Steps Down as Head Designer of Donna Karan
Iconic designer, Donna Karan, is stepping down as head designer of her namesake company, Donna Karan International. What's surprising, is that no replacement has been announced. Donna Karan runway shows and collection will be suspended until further notice. However, Donna Karan will remain as an adviser to the brand.
So what will Donna Karan be doing now? She will actually dedicate her time to her philanthropic work for Urban Zen Company and Foundation. Urban Zen focuses on healthcare, education and preservation of cultures, selling artisanal luxury goods.
This is definitely an end of an era for Donna Karan International. The visionary designer has said, "Donna Karan New York is part of me, past, present and future."
