About DKNY

DKNY (Donna Karan New York) is a label of fashion designer Donna Karan. It is also the name of a clothing store in New York City featuring Donna Karan's associated line. Inspired by her daughter Gaby, Donna Karan founded DKNY in 1989 in New York as a younger, more affordable diffusion line to run alongside her existing Donna Karan New York label. DKNY became a publicly-traded venture in 1996, and 2001, was purchased by French corporation Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessey. Stores opened in London in 1997 and New York City in 1999. The DKNY headquarters is located at 550 Seventh Avenue in Manhattan, New York. There are currently seventy Donna Karan collection and DKNY stores globally, including twenty stores in China including Hong Kong and Shanghai, two stores in Canada including Vancouver, B.C. and Montreal, four in Dubai. DKNY has also opened some stores in Wales. Since 2005, Donna Karan has offered online shopping of its DKNY and associated lines at the label's web site.
