The DKNY Fall 2014 campaign takes advantage of New York being one of the fashion capitals of the world and stars a group of real male and female New Yorkers.
Earlier this year in February for the presentation of the Fall 2014 show, DKNY had New Yorkers like Angel Haze, A$AP Illz and Juliana Huxtable walk the runway in place of models. Now, it makes sense that the print campaign follow suit and many of the same individuals that graced the catwalk in February now appear in the print campaign for the fashion brand.
Rita Ora also makes an appearance in the print ads, making her probably one of the most well-known New Yorkers, rocking her iconic platinum hair and red lips.
