The fashion world lost an incredible soul yesterday. Designer Oscar de la Renta passed away at 82. We’ll remember him the only way we know how: to marvel at the beauty he created throughout his life.
Oscar de la Renta, a name everyone says with an certain air in their voice changed the way the world saw American fashion; never sacrificing his vision. Everything he created was unapologetically embroidered, appliqued, and beautiful. He knew the woman and knew how to dress the woman, making her feel like she belongs. His house represented high society, black tie formality, and luxurious American women; his passion and talent were seen in everything he created and his spirit was in it too. Known for being extremely kind, amazingly generous and a true gentleman he always made the women he dressed feel good and made sure they had fun.
He didn’t only believe in fashion, but he believed in style. This loss is tragic. Fashion will never be the same. He is and always will be a legend, an icon and a true force in fashion.
