For those unfamiliar, DKNY is a lower-priced ‘diffusion line‘ fashion line by New York City-based designer Donna Karan. It was founded in 1989 and sells ready-to-wear and accessories for men, women and children.

The store opens at 10:00 am and The first 25 people to post their ‘selfie’ on Twitter using the hashtag #DKNYWEM will win a prize upon visiting the store. International models and DJ’s the Tang Twinz will be spinning from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. 

There are two DKNY stores in Vancouver (2625 Granville Street and at Oakridge Centre) and one at Les Cours Mont-Royal in downtown Montreal. A DKNY outlet store is also located at Vaughan Mills in suburban Toronto. 

DKNY is the latest upscale retailer to be featured alongside recently opened Tiffany & Co. and Stuart Weitzman stores. Neighbouring upscale retailers include Michael Kors and Coach
