Donna Karan: The Queen Of Seventh Avenue

New York Fashion Week is upon us- embrace Donna Karan’s unflinching ease with vintage pieces from C.Madeleine’s!



Donna Karan, known as DK to some, has had her hand in womenswear since the 1970s when she worked for (and quickly moved up the ranks to head designer at) Anne Klein. After over 10 years at the helm, Karan started her own namesake line focusing on easy pieces that flow together in multiple ways. A true New Yorker, she understood completely the value of quick paced yet chic dressing in the city that never sleeps and beyond.

Years later in 1988, Karan created DKNY which which she has called the “pizza to Collection’s caviar.” Focusing on lower price points, the DKNY empire grew into denim and menswear lines that are still synonymous with street-chic today.

Tina is styled in two quintessential Donna Karan looks: The Donna Karan mustard yellow wool coat and pencil skirt set is paired perfectly with a mock-turtleneck Kenzo knit top and brown leather booties. A flowy, ruched midnight blue silk dress is belted by a golden DKNY leather belt and Giuseppe Zanotti bronze heels. All pieces are available in store.
