Remembering Oscar De la Renta

  ''Born in the Dominican Republic, he traveled to Madrid to study painting at the Academy of San Fernando when he was just 18. His introduction to fashion began there, after he was enlisted by Cristóbal Balenciaga to sketch for him. He then went to Paris, where he worked at Lanvin, before moving to New York in the early Sixties and setting up his own label.
De la Renta's feminine aesthetic - borrowing sexiness from his Latin heritage and tempering it with a demure cut learned in Europe - as well as his easy, friendly demeanor quickly made him a favorite with society ladies. Tall and handsome, he became not only the go-to designer but also a favorite plus one for famous women - from models and actresses to first ladies.'' Vogue uk

     Anna Wintour shares the time spent with lifelong friend Oscar de la Renta:

'' Dinners in Paris when he was designing for Balmain would start with the two of us and end up twenty or more. He would ask the concierge to dinner rather than dine alone. There were glorious times in Punta Cana, always dancing, always singing, taking the kids out to swim with the dolphins when they were little, always happy to include ten more people for dinner, always the phone call to say thank you and to gossip, so thrilled to make Amal’s dress. He was determined to come to [my son] Charlies wedding, but was sent by his assistant to the wrong airport. Yet he turned up with a smile and kiss at the last minute to put the veil on Elizabeth and send her down the aisle in the dress of her dreams. Every girl’s dream.'' 

But how can any of us forget the last wedding dress our favorite designer made. Amal Alamoudin left us wondering what we should envy her most for? Marrying Hollywood star and sworn bachelor George Clouney or wearing a custom designed dreamy Oscar de la Renta wedding dress? The dress is an exquisite mille-feuille of ivory tulle appliquéd with fourteen yards of Chantilly lace, its bodice hand embroidered with beading and crystals.

The 2015 ready to wear collection has us all wanting to register to the nearest tennis club!

 The amazing designer will continue to live trough his creations and he will be honored daily by women all over the world.  
To the beautiful women out there have fun and mix and match!
Enjoy fashion!
