DKNY Watches

DKNY Watches are a creation of fashion designer, Donna Karen. The acronym DKNY stands for Donna Karen New York, and it was Donna's daughter, Gabby, who suggested that the line be set up. Today there are over seventy DKNY stores all over the world, including twenty in China alone. Donna was born as Donna Faske in New York city to a father who was tailor and a mother who was a model, so it was hardly surprising that she should have pursued fashion as a career. She married Mark Karan in 1974, but was divorced and subsequently married Steven Weiss who was highly supportive and helpful in the establishment of DKNY.

Donna attended Parsons School of design in New York, and then went to work for Anne Klein in 1968. Anne Klein died six years later in 1974 and Donna took over the reins. Ten years later in 1984 Donna left the Klein company and set up on her own. She wasn't entirely alone, however, as Takihyo Corporation of Japan was her backing company. They had also backed Anne Klein previously. For five years Donna worked in designing and displaying fashion until 1989 when she launched DKNY.

DKNY was set up to make designer clothes and accessories available and affordable to middle class people. The items were reasonable exclusive, but not so much that ordinary people could not afford to have them. Donna had identified a gap in the market that could be filled by the middle class, and this was the genius behind the creation of DKNY. In 1996 the company was publicly traded and it continues to grow and flourish. DKNY watches are among the most popular anywhere as they are well designed, a little bit quirky and just different enough to be exciting and very, very interesting.

The label of DKNY is available in many forms. DKNY Watches is just one of them. Most of the others concern clothing, such as DKNY Underwear and DKNY Jeans. Others target certain groups, such as DKNY Baby and DKNY Kids. Founding DKNY Watches as the perfect accessory item for a range of fashion items was an obvious move, and a very clever one too.


DKNY Watches are known for their sophistication and classic stylish looks. They combine the new with a touch of the older, more stable things in life. Occasionally, the design of DKNY watches goes beyond the expected to cause a deep intake of breath. DKNY Watches are never boring or ordinary, and they never disappoint either.
