In the fashion world, there has never been a man of as much class and dignity as the legendary Oscar de la Renta. He was my favourite by far. A cut above, and sheer excellence. A magnificent designer and artist.
Oscar de la Renta designed clothes for women and nothing other than healthy respect and admiration for the woman’s mind and body influenced him. He taught me about lines and attention to detail, the elegance in simplicity, yet how alluring a ruffle could be, and how to appreciate the rustling crush of taffeta.
When I got married, I wanted only that fabric for my wedding dress, because no one but no one knew to do wedding gowns like Oscar did.
To me, his gowns will always be where they were meant to be in women’s fashion. At the very top.
The world has lost a icon today. He will be sorely missed, and always loved.
