Donna Karan was born into a family of fashion experts. Her father was a tailor, her mother was a model, and Anna followed in their fashion-inclined footsteps by attending the Parsons School of Design. She got started in the industry by designing sportswear for Anne Klein, and she launched Donna Karan New York in 1985.
Donna Karan's clothing line combined her experience with sportswear with the 1980s power suit to create a look that was not only flattering but also easy to wear. Karan intended for these outfits to be versatile, so women could wear them at work, at dinner, at home, and on weekdays or weekends. She developed the label DKNY as well as the DKNY Men and Active lines in 1989, which introduced her work to a younger crowd. These new lines included products such as home accessories, children's clothes, and the first Donna Karan perfume.
The first Donna Karan fragrance was Cashmere Mist, and the bottle was designed by her sculptor husband. The fragrance was an immediate hit. Women loved the floral and sensual scent, which has notes of jasmine, amber, vanilla, and sandalwood. This scent was followed by other bestsellers, such as Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, and Be Delicious. These fragrances were adapted into colognes for men as well. Donna Karan fragrances are as versatile as her clothing line and great for any occasion.
