Donna Karan and Me

Donna Karan is famous for her consistently feminine, wearable clothing that speaks to the great diversity of women.”--Armand Limnander.

Here's a peek of her Resort 2010 womenswear collection.

She's one of my favorite designers. In this collection I love the shocking pink and red colors she combined with the basic black, grey, nude and navy blue colors. She is, indeed, a very feminine designer.

Speaking of Donna Karan, she once came to my dad's office (or showroom, or workshop, or.. I don't really know the exact word for it) in Bali, of course. I was very surprised when he told me this rather old stuff. He said that Donna Karan ordered some wooden furniture from my dad's store for her stores in the United States. So they, Mrs Karan and my dad, discussed the thingie and my dad didn't tell me anything until she went back to her place. He seemed very proud of it and I was like, "you are shitting me, dad. How can you prove that?". Then he showed me photographs of Mrs Karan and him. I'll ask him to show me again those photos....hmm, till now it's still an unsolved mystery for me that Donna Karan knew my dad's furniture store.

... I'm still waiting for her to order more stuff from my dad's store until this day, this minute, this second. Oh.. you don't know how much I wanna meet her...FYI She studied fashion design at Parsons the New School for Design and I really wanna study there. really, really, really want and need to be there in the next several years. *sigh*. Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Anna Sui, Narciso Rodriguez, Isaac Mizrahi, Derek Lam, and even Alexander Wang studied there also and they're like great, great worldwide-known designers.

Anyone can dream about their future. and mine is about me, being a famous designer like her (Donna Karan). hahahahaha now you can laugh until it hurts your stomach. But hey, who knows what will be going on tomorrow, or next week, or next year? May be my dream will come true. you know, who knows?

are you serious? i mean like... a real donna karan? cool! you don't have to study at parsons if you want to be a fashion designer anyway. wang is a prsons dropout honey. i think the most important thing is your sense of fashion. it shows how much you love fashion. sorry for my bullshit mouth :D
