Donna Karan Hits the West Coast

The designer returned to San Francisco last weekend for a Saks Fifth Avenue-sponsored luncheon and fashion show in support of the San Francisco Ballet.

KARAN’S BAY CITY: Donna Karan returned to San Francisco last weekend for a Saks Fifth Avenue-sponsored luncheon and fashion show in support of the San Francisco Ballet. “It’s amazing being back here. From an urban point of view, these women have such an elegance and consciousness about the world, so they’re really ideal customers,” said the designer, who launched her collection in I. Magnin there nearly three decades ago. “It’s also a city where women really get what the fall collection is about, from a red jersey dress to a shearling coat, they will actually wear these pieces.”

Among the guests were Marissa Mayer, Dede Wilsey, Sloan Barnett and Yurie Pascarella.
Karan
also flew down to Los Angeles for meetings for her integrated treatment program at UCLA and a luncheon at the Urban Zen boutique on Tuesday.
