Why Fashion Insiders Love Donna Karan – New York Fashion Week F/W 2012

Donna Karan‘s Fall/Winter 2012 runway show was all about the woman. Strong, sensuous and multi-faceted, Karan presented a menswear inspired collection that was built upon the woman’s form, presence and style. So it’s no surprise that when I polled fashion insiders at Cedar Lake (her show’s location) about why they love the woman behind the brand, they all resoundingly spoke about her dedication to women and championing how they dress. Read on to learn what Joe Zee, Brad Goreski, Ken Downing and more had to say about why they love and adore Donna Karan.
