I've previously posted in this forum about two other houses - Anne Klein and the House of Paquin.

This research is part of my dressmaking course where I have to research 6 designers. It seems a real shame to go through all the work to have only an examiner benefit from it.

I've found both the research about Donna Karan and the House of Worth to be really interesting. I hope you do too.

Both the below links lead to a page on my blog where you can download the research document which is in word format.

I checked to make sure you found out that Donna Karan had been fired from Anne Klein before making it big, and you did!! well done.
That story was told at design school, I think partly so that we would not be discouraged if fired from a job.

Here's one of the body suits from that collection in 1985.
