Overview

Donna Karan is the most prominent and successful figure in American fashion. Her popularity derives from a philosophy of designing real clothes for real women - beautiful yet practical creations that are as easily worn in everyday life as on the catwalk. She is the archetypal New Yorker, drawing her inspiration from the energy, pace, and style of the world's most sophisticated city. Originating as a womenswear label, her company now produces menswear, childrenswear, and accessories, all perpetuating the uniquely modern style that has brought Donna Karan world recognition.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
These four volumes continue the "Universe of Fashion" series of 11 titles published since 1996. Each volume in the series is devoted to a notable fashion designer and follows a simple template: ten to 15 pages of biography, 50 pages or so of photographs illustrating the designer's work, a career chronology, and photographic credits accompanied by thumbnails of the larger photographs (a nice touch). The volumes resemble miniature exhibit catalogs, providing quick glimpses of the lives and work of people who have molded the fashion establishment during the last few decades. Given the lack of scholarly apparatus, these are not essential works, but they do complement comprehensive art and design collections.--P. Steven Thomas, Central Michigan Univ. Lib., Mt. Pleasant
