Via a press release Donna Karan announced that after three decades heading the design of her iconic American fashion house, she is leaving her role as a chief designer. She revealed:” LVMH and I have made this decision after much soul-searching. I have arrived at a point in my life where I need to spend more time to pursue my Urban Zen commitment to its fullest potential and follow my vision of philanthropy and commerce with a focus on health care, education and preservation of cultures. After considering the right time to take this step for several years, I feel confident that DKI has a bright future and a strong team in place."
The company announcing that they are not currently looking for a replacement for Karan and there will be no spring/summer 2016 catwalk show at New York Fashion Week this September. But, while Karan will no longer be creating collections for the brand that she established in 1984 with her late husband Stephan Weiss, she will stay on as a close adviser to DKI, including the DKNY brand, under a long-term agreement.
Karan's independently own Urban Zen label is a lifestyle brand that creates simple, timeless basics in neutral hues, complemented by jewellery, accessories and handmade home furnishings. It is said to be introducing a yoga line later this year.
