After considering the right time to take this step for several years, I feel confident that DKI has a bright future and a strong team in place.” With her fall 2015 Donna Karan Collection show proclaimed as one of her best, Karan is clearly going out on top. . Sources also say that DKI is considering merging the Donna Karan Collection label with the youth-oriented DKNY. #thankyoudonna]]>
