Page Six is floating the rumor that legendary designer Donna Karan may be stepping down from her eponymous fashion line. They don't cite any specific sources, but say that they got word that Karan "could be prepping her departure" and that her New York Fashion Week show last week "may have been her swan song."

A brand spokesperson denies the rumors, issuing this statement: "Donna is the chief designer of the company. Anything else should be considered a rumor."
