Want it Wednesday: Remembering Oscar
This past Monday night, the world lost a true fashion icon, a man who will never be forgotten and whose designs will keep us enchanted for years to come. We lost a man whose designs are the epitome of class, sophistication, femininity and elegance.
Ever since I had any knowledge of haute couture and big household names, Oscar De La Renta, was one of the designers I admired the most. Being Latina, I was extremely proud of him for succeeding in the fashion industry, the way he had. I always dreamed that one day I would be wearing one of his gowns, whether it was at a red carpet (yes, silly dreams to be on a red carpet) or on my big day (his bridal gowns are to die for).
And while I definitely did not know Oscar De La Renta personally, his death, was something that left me feeling shocked and extremely sad.
Oscar changed the fashion industry, his elegant designs will forever live on, we will not forget him and to pay tribute to a man who will never be replaced in our hearts, I am showing you 10 of his recent designs that are on my wish list.
Rest In Peace Oscar De La Renta (1932-2014)
