Discount Flat Panel Monitor Arm – If you would like to buy a really special watch, it’s likely that you will want to choose one which has a unique history behind the brand. With DKNY watches, that’s exactly what you get. Here is a quick history to provide you with what you need to know about these watches before you get one for yourself.
The Early Years
DKNY was founded in 1989, but really the story goes back a long way before that. The DKNY story is the Donna Karan story. Growing up on Long Island, Karan was raised by parents who both had a keen eye for fashion seeing as her father was a tailer and her mother was a sales representative for a fashion brand.
In fact, Karan’s talent was evident from an early age when she came up with her first fashion collection before she had even left high school. From that moment it was clear that an exciting career lay ahead of her.
Before DKNY and DKNY watches were formed, Karan worked for Anne Klein and impressed her so much that when Klein passed away, Karan became her successor. Following this she came up with her own fashion label in 1984, and this brand focused on clothing and accessories.
DKNY is Formed
Soon DKNY began to expand to take in other lines, including DKNY Jeans, DKNY Active and many others. The accessories line also grew to be very popular, and DKNY watches were soon seen as one of the most fashionable brands around.
