oscar de la renta: the end of an era


Oscar de la Renta was truly one of a kind. Throughout his career he inspired more than a few fashion trends – and helped women feel like their best and most beautiful selves. With each collection he showed and every celebrity endorsement he received, this iconic fashion designer continued to wow the public.

On a personal level, Oscar has always been there. I remember seeing his gowns on celebrities I admired…. and wishing that I could look that glamorous. I think that is the most important thing Oscar did for fashion. Not only did he design some of the most elegant and sophisticated pieces – but he made women of all backgrounds and age groups long to wear something with his name on it.

In honour of his remarkable career, therunway+ has decided to profile the life and success story of Oscar de la Renta. I was fortunate enough to write the profile piece for the website, Oscar de la Renta: The End of An Era. If you are a fan of Oscar de la Renta’s work, definitely check it out. You can take a look at the article here: http://www.therunwayplus.com/2014/11/oscar-de-la-renta-end-era/
