RIP Oscar de la Renta


























































































































(photos via)

My favorite moments:
1. Fall/Winter RTW 13/14 Campaign
2. Bridal 2013
3. Fall/Winter RTW 2012
4. Spring/Summer RTW 2012


Oscar de la Renta died today. He was 82 years old.

The designer came from the Dominican Republic, he was first noticed in the 60's when he started dressing Jacqueline Kennedy. And this was only the beginning of a very fabulous ride; as by now, he's dressed more first ladies than any other designer. de la Renta has always been a go-to designer for the red carpet, as his gowns always proved to be glamorously elegant and always a hit among the critics. de la Renta also rose as one of the strongest and most wanted wedding dress designers (see his most recent, Amal Clooney).

With each new collection, we are always transported into another fairytale. One that's better than the last. Oscar de la Renta has kept his Latin touch throughout his rise in the American fashion world, and I've always admired that about him. Unlike many other designers (even on his level), he never forgot his roots.

With Oscar gone, the world is now a little bit less elegant and beautiful. We've lost a great talent, but no doubt the brand will still go on strong in his name.
