Vale Oscar de la Renta :: master of seductive elegance….


A small tribute to
the creative genius of
Oscar de la Renta
is in order,

in honour of his passing today;

because if any designer knew
how to create glamour,
it was he.


Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.
— Oscar de la Renta
Walk like you have three men walking behind you.
— Oscar de la Renta

Born in the Dominican Republic,
de la Renta was apprenticed to
Cristóbal Balenicaga
at the age of 18.

In 1963, he accepted a role
with Elizabeth Arden
designing haute couture gowns,
before setting up his eponymous label
in 1965. 

Every season I am inspired by women.

So Vale Oscar de la Renta

(July 1932 - October 2014).

Your elegance and gracious glamour will be missed.
