The ‘Essentials’ Queen of Seventh Avenue, Donna Karan has stepped down as chief designer from her namesake company, which is owned by LVMH.
She started her fashion career under Anne Klein in the 1960s. She later became well known and an American fashion sweet heart with her very first collection, Essentials, in 1985. This collection was just that, seven (essential) items, ready to be mixed and matched, but yet a complete wardrobe in itself. She is credited to have majorly influenced how working women dressed in America for the past 30 decades.
She also continues with her philanthorpic pursuits.
