In her new deeply personal and sometimes provocative memoir My Journey designer Donna Karan shares her life story, including intimate and candid stories of her difficult and isolated childhood (the daughter of a tailor and a showroom model-turned-Seventh Avenue saleswoman); her nearly five decades in an ever-evolving fashion industry; her two marriages; motherhood; and her spiritual journey over the last twenty years.
Since she introduced her game-changing Seven Easy Pieces fashion collection in 1985 (which allowed working women to trade their manly suits for sensual, comfortable separates), she has never lost sight of her life goal: to empower women. In this, her first book, she interweaves the journey of her incredible career (from scrappy Anne Klein intern to lifestyle guru) with her personal ups and downs as a young woman plagued by insecurities, a wife and mother straddling the personal and the professional, and a spiritual seeker and philanthropist.
