The loss of the iconic Oscar de la Renta is felt around the world today and we send our thoughts and prayers to his loved ones…”Never, ever confuse what happens on a runway with fashion,” Mr. de la Renta once said. “A runway is spectacle. It’s only fashion when a woman puts it on. Being well dressed hasn’t much to do with having good clothes. It’s a question of good balance and good common sense.” The Icon the legend Mr. Oscar de la Renta #RIP #oscardelarenta

 

Deeply saddened by the passing of the legendary Oscar de la Renta. The Father of American Fashion, one of the greatest talents of our time, a true icon of our day. The eternal gentleman who created beauty and elegance for over a half a century. It was always a humbling experience to be in his presence and a true privilege to dress so many women in his timeless bridal gowns this is an honor I will cherish throughout my lifetime…

Oscar de la Renta the doyen of American fashion, whose career began in the 1950s in Franco’s Spain and sprawled across the better living rooms of Paris and New York, and who was the last survivor of that generation of bold, all-seeing tastemakers, died on Monday at his home in Kent, Conn. He was 82. His death was confirmed by wife, Annette de la Renta. The cause was complications of cancer.
