Leave it to Donna Karan to change the game at New York Fashion week this season. The iconic designer presented an exhilarating runway show featuring real New Yorkers, as opposed to typical runway models, strutting down the catwalk in her clothes for a refreshing spin on the stylish event. In an interview with E! News, Karan explained that her concept this year was, above all else, about the Big Apple, saying "It wasn't about me, it's about a celebration of what I love…the buildings in New York, the people in New York, the energy of New York…there's no other place like it in the world!"
