Urban Zen

I always remember at the launch of Urban Zen,
founder Donna Karan in her typical New York sassy fashion said something along
the lines of:

“Well I could be sipping Margueritas in Tahiti over my last
collection, but I decided I had to listen to my inner voice and get involved to
make a real difference in this world.”

And she did.

Anyone who integrates their skills and knowledge and weaves
them to shape a better world to me is a true modernconscious icon.

Urban Zen is an integrated, philanthropic endeavour. Donna
is uniting her design and fashion aesthetic, retail, philanthropy, meditation
and social justice in this creation. Urban Zen pioneers wide ranging
initiatives such as integrative therapy, cultural preservation and empowerment
of children.
