DKNYC Fall 2014 NYFW Runway Show Using Full-Figured Model

 

Donna Karan is a large, international company, founded by the eponymous chief designer and her late husband in 1984.  Prior to the founding of her own company, Karan was the chief designer at Anne Klein following the death of Klein in 1974, where with Louis Dell’olio she developed the chic, Anne Klein Collection and then the Anne Klein II line in 1982 which originated the modern concept of bridge and lifestyle dressing.

Donna Karan became publicly traded in 1996, and in 2001 was acquired by the current owners,  French luxury conglomerate LVMH.

Consequently there are many price points and lines that carry the Donna Karan ethos, sensibility, and design stamp of sleek, modern classic pieces that work together to mix and match as a complete wardrobe. Both the Donna Karan and more moderately priced, diffusion DKNYC line that speaks to a younger audience are shown at New York Fashion Week.

A leader in fashion design, Karan has received many awards for both her design and charity work that embraces women and their lifestyles, so it is no surprise that she is an early pioneer into the expanded designer plus-size sphere (2010) with a recognition that women of all shapes and sizes appreciate well-designed, quality clothing that works with their busy lives.

This spirit of fashion size inclusivity includes tailored work looks under the DKNY label, trend-conscious and youthful styles under the DKNYC label, casual looks under the DKNY Jeans label, with sleepwear, hosiery, and intimates rounding out offerings for full-figured women.

Sizes mainly are offered through 24W in most major department stores, although  the sleepwear and hosiery lines, in particular, can frequently be purchased through on-line lingerie specialists such as Her Room and Bare Necessities.
