50 Daring Donna Karan Designs

From Exotic Printed Ensembles to Power Woman Campaigns

— November 22, 2011 — Fashion
63-year-old designer Donna Karan has accomplished incredible things in her career -- most notably, starting fashion lines DKNY and Donna Karan New York -- and as you will see in this gallery of stunning Donna Karan designs, her clothing is now just as relevant as ever.

Donna Karan designs transcend fads and current styles and have managed to maintain a sense of edginess, sophistication and modernity throughout the constantly evolving and fickle fashion industry.

The designer started her career as an assistant designer at Anne Klein in the late 1960s; she was eventually promoted to associate designer in 1971. After Anne Klein’s death, Karan became one of the head designers at the fashion house. She left in 1984 to start her own line, which she showcased for the first time in 1985.

The rest, as they say, is history. Check out this gallery of iconic Donna Karan designs for a look into the designer’s amazing career.
