Fashion designer Donna Karan attended the Parsons School of Design, then worked for Anne Klein at the age of 20. In 1985, she started her own brand together with her husband, Stephan Weiss; the Donna Karan fashion brand has been owned by LVMH since 2001. As quoted by the NY Times, Karan "became a force in American fashion by training her sights on the real-life wardrobe requirements of urban career women". In 2015, Karan resigned from her position as chief designer.
1992 saw the introduction of branded fragrances from Donna Karan followed by DK Men in 1994. This went ahead to be renamed as Fuel for Men. There was also Cashmere Mist introduced in 1994, although in the beginning it was a scent for body products, and finally there was Chaos which was introduced in 1996). These fragrances that were initially produced were produced in-house, and caused considerable loss of money for the brand.
Since 1997, branded fragrances are produced under licensing arrangements with Estee Lauder. Today, two main lines dominate the fragrance range : Donna Karan Beauty (relevant to the Donna Karan fashion line) and DKNY (relevant to the DKNY bridge line).
