Oscar de la Renta


Hello Fashionistas! 
I woke up to sad news today that Oscar de la Renta has passed. Upsetting news for the fashion community for sure. This man was not only a designer, he was a visionary. He created clothes for women who were successful, elegant, sophisticated and confident. He catered to those women and in turn became one of the best designers of the 20th and 21st century. His staple was feminine, elegant and chic. No wonder why he was a constant on the red carpet and featured in numerous movies. Also, you remember the pink dress Carrie Bradshaw wore in Sex and the City, where she takes Aleksandr Petrovsky to McDonald's? That dress was to die for. And, yes! That was Oscar de la Renta. I've put together some of my favorite pieces from Oscar de la Renta over the last decade. Do you have a favorite look from Oscar de la Renta? 


"Every season I am inspired by women." ~ Oscar de la Renta


"My job as a designer is to make a woman feel her very best." ~ Oscar de la Renta


"I like light, color, luminosity. I like things full of color and vibrant." ~ Oscar de la Renta


"I do not have one theme for each season, I just try to make beautiful clothes all year round." ~ Oscar de la Renta


"The great thing about fashion is that it always looks forward." ~ Oscar de la Renta


"We're dealing with sophisticated customers. What's most important to these women is individuality. I have to create things she'll want to wear, no matter who she is." 
~ Oscar de la Renta


"We live in an era of globalization and the era of the woman. Never in the history of the world have women been more in control of their destiny." ~ Oscar de la Renta


"I want to make clothes that people will wear, not style that will make a big splash on the runway." ~ Oscar de la Renta


"Fashion is about dressing according to what's fashionable. Style is more about being yourself." ~ Oscar de la Renta
