When I was a teen I declared that Donna Karan will be one of the designers I would wear. Even then her aesthetics appealed to me and, perhaps, influenced my style as it developed.
My love for her creations is obvious and I have a good reason for it – just like Diane von Furstenberg, the Donna Karan's clothes are timeless and designed for women to be worn and truly enjoyed, in comfort and confidence. And they are so beautifully made!
As the next “fashion week” was approaching I found myself torn between two names, in a position of a parent trying to choose which child she loved the most… Donna Karan was, indeed, one of them. I hesitated, I lost sleep for a couple of days, as insane it may sound to some. And then I walked to my wardrobe, pulled out the Donna Karan dress and knew exactly what would happen next.
