RIP Oscar de la Renta 1932-2014

Today is a sad day in the fashion and Dominican community. The first time I found out Renta was Dominican I thought to myself what better representation than a Dominican man dressing women all over the world, in that same world where men could barely dress themselves.  109 more words


Thank you Oscar

He understood us. He understood femininity. He knew what we needed. And he gave the most lavishing dresses to wear. The Dominican fashion designer Oscar de la Renta gave us years of beauty and elegance in his designs, before he said goodbye to us today, Tuesday, October 20th, 2014 at the age of 82. 102 more words
