Donna Karen, founder and chief designer of Donna Karan International (DKI), announced on Tuesday that she will be stepping down from her role in the organization. It’s not all bad news though because the 66-year-old will still be a big part of the fashion world. Ms. Karan will devote more time to her Urban Zen line which centers on artisanal goods and easy to wear clothing. In addition to her schedule she will remain an advisor to Donna Karan International.
