Donna Karan Is Stepping Down As Chief Designer

After more than three decades of inspiring women to embrace the working world with power and fulfillment through fashion, Donna Karan is stepping down as Chief Designer for DKI (Donna Karan International).

According to WWD, Karan will remain a close advisor of the label, but wants to spend more time working on her Urban Zen Company and Foundation. “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 with a focus on health care, education and preservation of cultures. After considering the right time to take this step for several years, I feel confident that DKI has a bright future and a strong team in place,” reported Karan. 

Karan founded DKI in 1984 and the brand went public by 1996. In 2001, LVMH invested in DKI and turned the brand into an international name. Karan made a huge impact with her fashion influence not only in America but around the world.

A replacement has not yet been named. Donna Karan made the decision to suspend the brand’s runway shows and collections for now until a successor is in place. The company plans to support Karan’s brand by reorganizing its teams and structure. But have no fear, you can still by DKNY in stores!
