DKNY are embracing the whole local/global and curating trends with their first concept store. From east to west London and from uptown NYC to downtown, all over the world different neighbourhoods have their own, individual styles. What American design powerhouse DKNY have done is to take their approach to an even more refined, local, boutique level.
Every August I spend a week or so in Oxfordshire visiting my in-laws, who live in a sweet little village six miles outside of Oxford. While we are there, we take long walks in the countryside, have lunch by the river and barbeques in the evening, spending time with our five year old nephew who we don't see enough of.
And while we are more open to purchasing electronic products that are China- made, many of us are still resistant to paying top dollars for a designer bag or a dress that's manufactured there (as opposed to home countries of these fashion houses). Admit it, there is hesitation. So, why the prejudice?
