Donna Karan wanted to celebrate the female body with her latest collection.

The designer showcased her autumn/winter 2013/14 range at New York Fashion Week yesterday (11.02.13), which featured tight black suiting, jersey-draped dresses, asymmetric capes and body-sculpting gowns and she says she wants women to feel good in her clothes.

She said: "It's all about the body,"

Earthy browns, black, metal and rust made up the colour palette and in her show notes, she wrote: "These are clothes for women like me."

Donna's A-list pal Uma Thurman was in the front row and the actress was very impressed with the collection.

She told "I'm a huge fan of hers, it was such a strong collection. Female empowerment is her mission - above and beyond fashion. She's someone who really walks the talk."

Betsey Johnson also showcased her latest collection yesterday as did Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who presented their new range for high-end label The Row.

The designer twins once again managed to pull off a stylish-yet-practical collection, featuring jumpers, tailored trousers, blazers and tunics.
