Episode Summary

EDIT
Donna Karan
Called the most important female designer of women's fashions since Coco Chanel, in 1984, she launched her own company with clothes for women just like her: powerful, sensitive, sexy, bright women in business. Before Donna, executive clothes for women were mannish. Donna made them sensual, luxurious, and yet easy to wear with the creation of her trademark Seven Easy Pieces a group of interchangeable clothes that could be worn from day into evening. Her design philosophy is simple. "I stand in the mirror just like every other woman in the world", says Donna. "How am I gonna look? What looks good? You know? Am I too fat? My legs are too this. My waist is too this. So from those faults come understanding a woman's body. It's with that insecurity that I'm able to design. It's like accenting the positive, and deleting the negative." By 2000, that philosophy was the foundation of an empire earning a billion dollars a year including eyewear, fragrances, home furnishings, and the hugely successful DKNY line of hip, street smart sportswear.moreless
