Remembering Oscar de la Renta

 

Oscar de la Renta's sad passing two days ago shook the fashion world.  With a career that spanned 4 decades, the legendary designer dressed Hollywood greats and international icons such as Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy, Penelope Cruz and Kate Moss. Women around the world coveted his signature voluminous gowns, often artfully ruffled and perpetually elegant. His couture creations strongly emphasised and enhanced the feminine silhouette, transforming women who wore an Oscar de la Renta gown into modern-day goddesses. 

We celebrate the life and work of an incredible artisan whose light will forever burn bright.
