American designer Donna Karan visited Boston on Friday to host a cocktail party and fashion show with Saks Fifth Avenue and Boston Common Magazine. The CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award winner flew in from Israel and began the evening with a reception at Saks. The party then moved Drydock at the Seaport, where guests were lifted through heavy freight elevators to a loft space with a runway and bar. Guests were treated to a show featuring highlights from Ms. Karan's Fall 2013 collection, as well as a preview of Resort 2014. Note to Boston: the capes, double breasted coats and opaque tights shown are simply perfect for November in the Hub!

When asked what she'll be wearing for fall, Ms. Karan tossed back her head and laughed. "This!" She proclaimed, gesturing to her black stretch jersey dress, harkening back to her sensational Seven Easy Pieces. Indeed, Ms. Karan, indeed.

(Regarding my outfit, it is shamefully NOT Donna Karan!)
