Donna Karan created meche hearts "Fashion for Haiti: One Million Hearts"

For Donna Karan, Haiti is the confluence of all her passions which include children's education, preservation of culture and well-being and health of people. She showed how big her heart is when she displayed her heart on 'Fashion for Haiti: One Million Hearts'. Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Nicole Miller along with 150 members of Council of American Fashion Designers put on auction the mâché hearts they created for 'Fashion for Haiti: One Million Hearts'. The auction runs from 22 April, 2013 to 2 May, 2013. 'Fashion for Haiti' is a collaboration between eBay, CFDA and Urban Zen.


Karan told to Women's Wear Daily that she was mesmerized by the extent and vividness of creativity and that each piece was unique in its own way and she could not call them anything less than couture collection. The money raised from the auction will be used by Urban Zen Foundation to help the Haitian artists. These Haitian artists actually created the hearts put on auction but were decorated by the designers. The New York location of Urban Zen has the installation of the hearts.

Donna Karan is known for her long term support to Haiti and its people. She has done everything within her limits to help Haiti. She partnered with American Express for creating handmade bracelets. She also photographed Adriana Lima during 2012 Spring Campaign in Haiti and frequently puts focus on Urban Zen for the benefit of Haiti.
