The news broke late yesterday evening that Donna Karen is stepping down from her role as Chief Designer of the fashion brand she founded more than three decades ago.

In 1984, Donna launched her label DKI (Donna Karan International) with husband Stephen Weiss and later, in 1988, she launched DKNY, a label we all know and love today.

In 2001, LVMH, the world leader of luxury brands, bought up DKI, although Karan herself remained hugely influential in the capacity of Chief Designer

The New Yorker became famous for her alternative thinking when she first launched her label, creating designs no one had previously explored. At the time women were only beginning to climb the corporate ladder and – they wanted to have the attire to match. Karan made a big impact when she launched practical, layer-able and most of all, feminine pieces. 

For the time being, there is no immediate successor and, in fact, the label's fashion shows will be put on a temporary hiatus. 

We just hope the label doesn't suffer and is still able to stay in competition with the likes of Calvin Klien and Ralph Lauren.



Cara Delevingne has a great sense of style, but this latest shoot shows she can look gorgeous in just about anything!

The blonde model features in DKNY's Spring/Summer 2015 menswear campaign sporting a tailored black suit, white shirt and tie along with her trademark platform sneakers.


Shot in New York's Central Park, the photos also feature male models Ben Nordberg, Jackson Hale and Sang Woo Kim.

Cara has rocked a tuxedo on the red carpet before, but usually with heels or blinging accessories for a touch of femininity.

It seems DKNY really got their value for money this season as the supermodel also features in their womenswear campaign, this time with an embellished black dress layered over a yellow striped woollen one.

We have to say, we prefer her in the suit!

It seems Kendall and Brooklyn aren’t the only star studded children to hit the runway, as Jude Law’s son, Rafferty was seen modelling for DKNY last Sunday.

The 17-year-old was a part of DKNY MEN & Esquire official opening night for its new London Collections and definitely made an impression on the catwalk.

Rafferty is really making a name for himself too, as the actor’s son has apparently already secured himself some more future modelling gigs, which is quite an impressive considering he’s just starting out too.




Not satisfied at being a successful model and actress, Cara Delevingne can now add ‘fashion designer’ to her list of professional attributes.

The star has designed a capsule collection for DKNY and she shared the news last night on her Instagram account, saying: “Get Ready!!! It’s Coming… #Cara4DKNY”

DKNY have confirmed the news saying the collection is mostly comprised of unisex clothes and includes beanies, T-shirts and a leather motorcycle jacket with removable sleeves.

This is good news for prospective models as Cara will be casting two or three fans to join her in the campaign for her new collection.

Cara asked her Instagram followers to “post a pic of yourself looking fresh to your Instagram and tag #CaraD4DKNY and #CaraWantsYou between now and 16 June” to be in with the chance to join her in New York for the shoot.

Sounds like a dream opportunity!

With summer on the way, what better time to make sure that you will be at your most comfortable than by having the right support.

And thanks to Clerys special campaign Love your Lingerie, this is possible.

The department store is organising  a special free underwear fitting by underwear specialist and celebrity stylist, Maureen O’Halloran, on Thursday 22nd May.
