Any fan of legendary American designer Donna Karan is familiar with her advertising images that evoke the spirit of the woman who wears her clothes. Strong. Powerful. Sexy. Feminine. Years ago (I’m really dating myself here) I used to clip the images and paste them on my walls in college because this was the kind of woman I aspired to be. Somewhere in a box in my childhood home is a collection of images of Donna Karan imagery, from her advertising campaigns to strong photos using her amazing clothing. I’ve loved them -and her – for years.
The images for the Fall 2011 campaign are no different. Feast your eyes on the woman-as-powerful-creature images. Here are the specifics:

Fall fashion is coming. Top of my wish list this year is something from Donna Karan New York, a few pieces from her amazing Donna Karan Casual Luxe line and more than a few pieces from my beloved DKNY. Judging from these ads, I’ll have quite the shopping list.
