Friday's Fabulous: Donna Karan

Donna Karan is a designer, creator, business woman and philanthropist.   The design house she started in 1984 with her husband is now an empire with multiple lines and even more multiple retail stores.  Her care for the world around her is even more impressive.  In 2007, she founded Urban Zen:  "I have founded the Urban Zen initiative to create a working structure for advancing wellness, preserving culture and empowering children. These are causes that mean the world to me."

I love, love, love her Spring collection and even more so because it was shot in Haiti.  An extension of the work that is being done there by Urban Zen, the shoot provided employment for a crew of 70.   These photographs were taken there.
