After 10 years as an assistant designer to Anne Klein, Donna Karan launched her own range in 1985 with late-husband Stephen Weiss. Revolutionizing the way the professional woman dresses, with her “Seven Easy Pieces” collection, Karan became synonymous with the New York look, pioneering the all-black women’s wardrobe, use of luxurious fabrics like cashmere, and popularizing the bodysuit and layers look.
