Along with the rest of the world, we were so saddened to hear the death of Oscar de la Renta, one of the most sought-after fashion designers of the last half century, died on Monday at the age of 82. Oscar De la Renta was born in the Dominican Republic and went to Spain to study art, but was drawn to fashion and started working alongside Spanish designer Cristobal Balenciaga.
He made his name in the 1960s dressing one of the major fashion icons of the day, first lady Jacqueline Kennedy and established his company in New York in 1965. Other first ladies includes Nancy Reagan, Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama.
Oscar De la Renta was known as one of the industry’s classic creators, famous for elegantly feminine designs marked by flattering silhouettes with full skirts and cinched waists, often rendered in soft hues and floral patterns. Who most recently designed Amal Clooney’s wedding dress.
