MAKE THAT THREE: This week, Donna Karan didn’t just have her usual two presentations for Collection and DKNY labels. On Wednesday, she also managed to find time to host an event at her Urban Zen store, to present her concept with a presentation titled “Philanthropy and Commerce: A New Paradigm of Retail.” The afternoon at the Stephen Weiss Gallery offered a calm within the chaos of fashion week — to borrow some of Karan’s own words — and editors got to see the newest Urban Zen offerings for spring — “in season,” Karan said, pointing to one of her pet peeves in fashion — and hear her make her humanitarian case. “This is a place where the like-minded can come together, those who want to make a difference in the world,” she said.
“My dream, my passion is to see Urban Zen centers in every city,” she added.
FINISH LINE: There may have been fewer parties than usual this fashion week, but the New York season is coming to an end with a welcome addition. L’Wren Scott and Mick Jagger are said to be planning a party to fete Scott’s fall collection and the end of fashion week. A spokesman for Scott confirmed the plans for the party, but declined to disclose more details.
