The influence of fashion designer Oscar de la Renta will remain. Known for elegant, feminine silhouettes and outfitting the world’s most glamorous women, his designs reflected an innate American sensibility. Form and function with classic pieces and feminine trimmings; lots of oversized bows, flower motifs, and the go-to designer for wedding gowns. The aesthetic was a reflection of the man himself, always poised, polished and emanating a high decree of decorum so rarely found today. A fixture of high society, his clientele ranged from Park Avenue to Hollywood and political royalty. A few images to pay tribute to a man of powerful vision and elegant execution, creating some of the 20th centuries most beloved fashion.
