Donna Karan - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) Donna Karan's show was one of her most self-assured and smoldering collections in recent memory. There was plenty to look at on the runway: Karan presented an array of beautifully constructed gowns, shearling pieces, and light corsets--nearly all splattered with deceptively muted tones. It also treated the audience to the musical delights of Eric Lewis. “The piano player was amazing,” raved Bernadette Peters. “I almost wanted to give him more attention, but I was to busy picking out my wardrobe.” Karan's program goal was "embracing a new reality, empowering a woman with strength and security, inspiring her senses, touching her soul." Touching her wallet should have been an unspoken addition.
