It’s important to learn about the brand you’re intending to buy when searching for quality sunglasses. If you have ever purchased a DKNY item or are considering supporting the brand, then read on to learn more about the people, history, and products behind this successful name.

Early History

DKNY is titled for its creator, Donna Karan, who founded the company in 1984. Donna Karan aimed to create a line of products that embraced the beauty of femininity while simultaneously allowing for optimum comfort. The DKNY brand was intended to be an all-encompassing, urban-esque look with a focus on dressing all parts of the body, from the eyes to the feet, with the same level of detail.



After attending Parson’s School of Design, Karan continued a long and successful fashion career. The founder of DKNY has been honored six times by the Council of Fashion Designers of America, and was nominated for the CFDA’s Womenswear Designer of the Year Award in 2010.


Social Consciousness

DKNY is not simply a commercial brand, but also a brand built on addressing social issues. Donna Karan has used DKNY’s international success to draw attention to AIDS awareness and education.


Style Diversity

DKNY sunglasses are regarded as a top-selling brand, thanks to their diverse styles that suit a variety of tastes. DKNY sunglasses are the ideal accessory for every season, and come in a variety of styles and colors, from copper aviators to gray oversized frames.
