Spring 2000 for Donna Karan revolved around the concept of "Fusion—between the past and the future, the body and fabrics, the ancient arts of the East and the modern pace of the West." As usual, Karan kept the palette elementary: indigo, black, nude and ivory showed up on soft jackets, scarf-like shirts and chic suits. Paper-thin kimonos and nude-colored suedes looked clean and modern, while hand-painted floral chiffons added a sensual feeling to the evening styles.
