In Honor And Memory Of....

Oscar De La Renta



Designer

Artist

Icon

Legend

Gentleman

One-of- a- Kind




One of my absolute biggest inspirations in the industry is Oscar.


A demonstrator of true elegance and class







Oscar De La Renta debuted as a couture designer in Paris in 1993




His integrity for the art withheld admirably, as many lose sight of it, caught up in the "who's who" of the fashion show attendees.

"When you do megashows, it loses the reason of why we’re showing. It’s important for [certain industry professionals] to look at the clothes and see them."






"There is no sound more feminine than a woman in a taffeta dress."











 "My job as a designer is to make a woman feel her very best."





He has left a lasting impression, and impacted the world.  



His name and all he stood for will live on forever.

Tulle has been trending, fulfilling our love for "dress-up" that never ceased from being a little girl




A full skirt gives the feeling of grace and poise





...Whether a madame, or a mademoiselle, she is never too old to twirl







Draw your curtsy-worthy layers...



...And strut
