New York is the greatest creative haven there is. From the alternative music venues, to the graffiti-filled brick walls, the city has always fostered the greatest talents. Just take Debbie Harry, Joan Jett, Andy Warhol, and Joan Jett for instance—they all became legends on these concrete streets. And the coolest thing about New York is that you can make it big, no matter where you're originally from.

For the DKNY's fall/winter 2014 campaign, the brand tapped 15 of the most talented New Yorkers, with roots from all around the world, and brought them together to celebrate the true spirit of NYC. Rita Ora, Soo Joo Park, Mike Bailey Gates, A$AP Illz, Dorith Mous, and more share their New York stories to uncover what the New York "attitude" is.
