The night was bright and cool Monday evening for a star studded spectacle that celebrated DKNY's 25th Anniversary and their spring/summer 2014 fashion show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.The show highlighted a collection of logo clad, brightly colored, somewhat 90's flashback of back to basic ready to wear. It was an all American homage of the brand through the years with Rita Ora closing the show.
Notably one of the hottest events of this fashion season, the DKNY party brought out celebrities like; lady of the hour Donna Karan, Rita Ora who was set to perform, Emmy Rossum from Showtime's hit series "Shameless", actor and "30 Seconds to Mars" front man Jared Leto, top fashion models Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls, Iggy Azalea ,Chrissy Teigen, Jay Manuel, korean k-pop star CL, and rapper A$AP Rocky, who also took a turn on stage.
Guests were treated to some late night delicacies including fresh h'orderves, an open bar and mini cupcakes. The highlight of the party, however, undoubtedly came from Karan’s guest of honor, Ora, who took to the stage in head to toe DKNY. The British songstress sang a medley of hits and surprised the crowd with another guest performer, Azalea who served up her insatiable single "Work". The pair got some special participation from some familiar faces in the crowd including Rossum, who looked particularly stunning in a sparkling gold number. All in all the night proved to be a definite success and a perfect ushering in of another hopeful 25 years for the New York fashion brand!
