As designer Donna Karan for in her press notes, the collection has been “Inspired by people on the street. They give a fresh spin to whatever they wear, personalized as they go along.”
So in a bold move, Donna Karan casted real people for this show; with half models, half New York party kids, it was a true New York mash up. Urban styles with nonchalant attitude define the DKNY 25th anniversary collection.
And somehow, it feels right. After all, DKNY is inspired by the city so for its quarter century, it went back to its original muse – the people of New York.
