About Donna

Known for her classic silhouettes with a modern and contemporary edge, Donna Degnan has become a favorite go to designer for many women across the country. Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, Donna’s creativity was inspired by her parents and their very successful interior design business. After graduating Fashion Institute of Technology, Donna designed collections for a few major retailers where her tenacious work ethic and talent were noticed. In the late 90′s, she was given the opportunity to design her own signature collection. “There was a void in the market for trendier clothing designed with sophisticated, quality workmanship”, explains Donna. “As a woman, I was looking for this. As a designer, I decided to create it.” Donna has a very loyal audience of celebrities in television, politics, stage and film. Inside Edition’s Deborah Norville, former Governor Christine Whitman, E News reporter Alicia Quarles and Broadway actress Donna Murphy are just a few spotted in Donna Degnan designs. Donna’s designs have been seen in numerous magazines and websites and recently she was a featured designer for Cotton Incorporated’s major Miami 24 hour Fashion Show 2013. The Donna Degnan label can be found in over 500 better specialty stores including Tootsies in Houston and Dallas TX, Mitchell’s in Westport, CT, Richard’s in Greenwich, CT, Marsh’s in Huntington, NY, Balliet’s in Oklahoma City, OK and Joan Shepp in Philadelphia, PA to name a few.
Donna Degnan’s design studio is located in New York City and she is very proud to manufacture her collections in New York City’s Garment Center. Lulu, Donna’s adorable and feisty “Morkie” dog comes to work with Donna every day and is never too far from her favorite designer.
