Donna Morgan is a New York City based fashion line with not one but two major specialties-ready to wear AND bridesmaids. A Donna Morgan piece caters to individual styles while maintaining flattering silhouettes. They never compromise quality and their clothing’s longevity ensures a piece can always can be worn WAY more than once. When you get a chance to take 5 Minutes With Donna Morgan’s CEO, Kathleen McFeeters, you don’t think about it… you just say yes! We’re officially fan girls… and are particularly smitten with her definition of success:
MY LIGHTBULB MOMENT:
When I was a young girl around the age of 15 or 16, I knew I wanted to be in fashion so I made that my goal and I worked hard to accomplish it.
I CAN’T START MY DAY UNTIL:
I brew a cup of coffee and do daily meditation. It helps to ground me so I start my day off on the right foot.
When people who work for me thrive in the areas where they are passionate. Seeing them succeed makes me feel successful.
YOU’LL NEVER SEE ME WITHOUT:
MY DREAM COLLABORATION:
Would be with an Oscar De La Renta, Amsale, or Reem Acra on a bridesmaid collection. They have rich design aesthetics that would translate into gorgeous collaborations.
THE ONLY PLACE BETTER THAN NYC:
Bridgehampton, NY. I have a small cottage surrounded by English gardens where I try to escape to in the summer.
WHEN I FEEL UNINSPIRED:
I like to go for a walk and make an effort to open my eyes to the things going on around me. Our surroundings offer an endless source of inspiration if we are willing to be open.
ADVICE I WISH I HAD 5 YEARS AGO:
Don’t take things to heart. I am continually learning how to let things go, as I am so passionate about my business. It is difficult not to take things personally when you give so much of yourself to your business everyday.
IN 5 YEARS FIND ME:
Watching someone else run the company from a day-to-day standpoint. My desire is to position the company where I can move to a chairman position and take a step back from daily operations.
ABOVE ALL ELSE:
I try to live by my motto. “Be Happy & Be Grateful.”
