Donna Karan Auctions Off Internships To Rich Kids

You’ve got five more days to pay $3,000 for a week-long internship in Donna Karan’s PR department, get going! If that sentence sounded a little off to you, you’re not alone. Designer Donna Karan is auctioning off a short-term internship and we find that a little gross, elitist, etc. The only saving grace is the fact that the proceeds go to help out the Stephen Gaynor School, an awesome place for kids with learning difficulties. It’s not so much that the designer’s heart is in the wrong place as the fact that an opportunity that should be merit-based is being sold like a designer dress that very few can afford, and that feels icky to us.
