LaPazions, yes you just read this correctly Donna Karen who is the Founder and brand of her name sake is stepping down. I think I went into shock when I received this information late today. The 66 year old fashion Designer has been a staple in the way most highly professional working American women have dressed and are dressing- Seriously the DK brand and name are just synonymous with corporate America.
We were fully aware that in either the early or later part of 2001 the French based company and major mogul LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton had purchased the brand but; they had stated: “No immediate plans to replace Donna Karen as a Designer” but, in the other breath they stated: “There will not be a showing for the September New York Fashion Week..” I was like WOW!!
I mean what exactly does this mean for the brand and what direction is Ms. Karen going to go now.. Well per a statement that she made:
“LVMH and I have made this decision after much soul-searching. I have arrived at a point in my life where I need to spend more time to pursue my Urban Zen commitment to its fullest potential and follow my vision of philanthropy and commerce.”
I for one am very sad to see and hear this news but, I know Donna Karen is on a bigger and brighter pathway and we cannot wait to see what she will bring and birth on her new endeavors. We’re wishing her so much success in this new chapter but, it’s a sad day in the Fashion Industry.
We cannot wait to hear your feedback on the ending of a true fashion titian and era..
We love being social so we hope you’ll join us:
