Homage to Oscar de la Renta

As the fashion world mourns a legend, we pay homage to renowned fashion designer and style icon Oscar de la Renta.

We were saddened to hear of the death of Oscar de la Renta this morning who died at the age of 82, following a lengthy battle with cancer. First coming to prominence in the early 1960s while designing clothes for Jackie Kennedy, Oscar de la Renta went on to create his own fashion label, carving a hugely successful career in fashion that lasted over 4 decades. He quickly became a favourite amongst movie stars and First Ladies, dressing the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Princess Diana and Nicole Kidman to name but a few. His breathtaking gowns, known for their luxurious fabrics and opulent embellishments, remain a red carpet favourite, with Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz and Sarah Jessica Parker all dazzling in his designs at recent award ceremonies.

Clearly passionate about his job, the designer worked right up until his death with a show at New York Fashion Week on September 9 and most recently designed an exquisite lace wedding gown for Amal Alamuddin who married George Clooney in Venice on September 27, and appeared alongside her in a Vogue fashion shoot.

Described as a “master craftsman”, “true legend” and “the ultimate gentleman” by his famous friends, it’s needless to say he will surely be missed.
