If fashion is forever young, several top fashion designers have turned to a secret weapon in keeping up with the trends — their children. Offspring of the likes of Donna Karan, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren are, either officially or unofficially, working in their parents’ businesses. They’re offering design advice, expanding the businesses through Web sites and licensing, or just keeping their parents hip.
Here, what some of the designers — and their kids — have to say about keeping it all in the family.
