Tag Archives: New York Collections Fall 2011

Graceful and confident, Donna Karan’s autumn/winter collection is entitled Pearls of Wisdom and is all about embracing a woman’s femininity with conviction.

Donna Karan has been a fashion hero of mine since my freshmen year at F.I.T. in New York City when she came to speak to our class about her career and launching her business. I love her Fall 2011 Collection and I absolutely ADORE this layered multi-pearl Necklace! View the full collection at I am now approaching the age where I can seriously pull off some of her beautiful clothes, now I just have to come up with the funds to afford them! I did purchase one of her collection jackets at Loehmann’s once in the early 90’s. The look was way too mature for me then.

I will be bringing you more highlights from the Runways of New York, London, Paris, Milan and LA! Stay tuned!


This is my favorite look so far from the Fall 2011 Collections. I just said “wow” when this slide popped up on I love the rich red, burgundy color combination of the dress, gloves, shoes and the beautiful multi-colored stoned brooch. I would wear this look, it is stunningly feminine and has a Mad-Men- esque feel.

Just 2 weeks ago I was discussing with some industry colleagues the relevance of brooches in modern dressing and how well they are adopted by consumers. I received mostly negative feedback. This is a stunning example of how a beautiful brooch can make all the difference. Imagine this dress without it. I would love your comments on this!
