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.

Fans keep heart, as she isn’t going too far away from her artistic calling. She would be continuing her design magic with British designer Sonja Nuttall with Urban Zen.

She also continues with her philanthorpic pursuits.

I visited the Brooklyn Museum to see the most talked about exhibition at FIT this season, the Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibition titled “From Streetwalk to Catwalk”.  Thanks to Prof. Christopher Uvenio, who literally forced us, Fall ’14 Fashion Art IV class, to visit the exhibition! The exhibition was incredible and I tried to capture a little with my iPhone to share it with you guys who missed it.
