For designer Donna Karan, today’s high-energy 25th anniversary DKNY show was dedicated to the city the line was born and bred in. The spring 2014 collection, boasting bold pastel trenches, dresses, swimsuits and blazers, represents “New York,” Karan told InStyle.com. “The art of New York, the individuality of New York, the needs of New York, the strength of New York, the power of New York and obviously black and white and color.” And among those celebrating in the front row were Kelly Osbourne and Bella Thorne (in DKNY). Thorne, in a piece from the spring collection, called the line’s sporty feel her favorite. But what she really loves about DKNY? The designer herself. “She’s just a very good, sweet, kind person,” Thorne told InStyle.com before the show. “It would be such an honor to meet her, and I’m like, ‘Where is she? Where is she? I want to meet her, I want to meet her!’” One DKNY loyalist who took her Fashion Week activity beyond the front row was musician Rita Ora, who, as the new face of the brand, stepped out on the runway to close the show in the collection’s final look.
