A Message From Our Founder, Donna Karan

Donna Karan

Our Founder

A world traveler, a lifelong yogi, as well as mother and grandmother, Donna considers Urban Zen the natural extension of her desire to find the missing link in the areas she cares most about. It is also the realization of Donna’s dream not just to dress people, but to address them as well.

Our Soulful Purpose

Urban Zen embraces conscious consumerism. A marriage of commerce and philanthropy, it ‘dresses and addresses’ an urban lifestyle by offering real-life solutions that connects mind, body and spirit.

Seasonless and timeless, every product we offer advances the greater good with integrity of design and by whom it benefits. We raise awareness about what is happening in the world, while offering answers to what we can do - as a consumer and a community - to make a difference.

Our Soulful Promise

As founded by Donna Karan, Urban Zen’s mission is to raise awareness and inspire change to the issues that touch all of our hearts. We do that through the Urban Zen Foundation creating integral connections on individual and global levels, bringing mind, body and spirit to preserving cultures, well-being and the education of children.

Preserving Cultures

We help cultures maintain the natural essence and identity in the face of globalization. We create programs that help communities preserve their unique cultural and spiritual values, allowing us to celebrate their creativity and craftsmanship.

Well-Being

Our mission to shift the current healthcare paradigm to include integrative medicine and promote patient advocacy. We treat the patient with the same passion we treat the disease by combining western science with nutrition, yoga and eastern healing practices.

Empowering Children

We seek to empower our children, giving them the knowledge and tools to overcome obstacles. We collaborate with like-minded children’s organizations and create programs to enhance children’s spiritual, physical and emotional growth.
