New York based fashion house DKNY was founded in 1984 by Donna Karan. After working for fashion designer Anne Klein for 15 years, Karan decided to create her own fashion brand. The first collection was launched in fall 1985 and was made up of just seven easy to wear pieces that would all work well together. The line was a success and Donna Karan went on to launch menswear and in 1989 Karan founded DKNY, a more affordable fast fashion line for a younger audience. The brand has been a global success over the years and now produces menswear, jeans, accessories, hosiery, cosmetics and a successful fragrance line, including the infamous DKNY perfume Be Delicious.
