Donna’s Journal


Can you believe the summer’s come and gone? It always goes by too quickly, but this one really flew. I started the summer traveling – India, Israel and Ibiza (above.) (Funny how they all start with the letter I.) This week, as I ready for our Donna Karan runway show, I’ve been working with all the amazing Indian scarves that inspired the collection. Yet, in between my world traveling and the return to the New York fashion world, I came home to the Hamptons, where I’ve spent every summer for as long as I can remember.

I start my day at Yoga Shanti in Sag Harbor, taking a class with Rodney Yee or Colleen Saidman Yee. Then I go to my Urban Zen store, which is right next door to my daughter Gabby’s restaurant Tutto il Giorno, where we meet friends and family for lunch or dinner.
