I woke up today to the saddest news the fashion world ever received: One of my all-times favorite designers passed away. Oscar De La Renta finally lost his battle against cancer and gave up. The man who bowed a millions times after his amazing fashion shows, took a final bow and said his goodbyes to the industry he loved and to life altogether.
This post is nothing but a tribute to the man, and his eternal creations.
Oscar De La Renta was born in 1932 to a Dominican family, and studied arts in Madrid where his talent was discovered by socialites. From there he moved back to New York City only to take American fashion by storm and confirm it as par to European fashion. The red carpet fell in love with his creations and before he knew it, he was a favorite of celebrities and of the white house.
Oscar De La Renta dresses are nothing short of legendary. Creative, feminine, beautiful, dreamy and straight out of the wildest fairytales; Oscar De La Renta dresses were truly royal.
Below I gathered my favorite Oscar De La Renta moments from the red carpet, the 2012 to 2015 shows and a cool shopping selection from the latest items he designs before he passed away (you can still buy these on the market).
