Oscar de la Renta

Always relevant and inspiring Oscar de la Renta passed away today. Not only did he design for the rich and famous, he made his designs accessible to the home sewist. He came onto the fashion scene in the nineteen fifties and produced designs offered by Vogue for most of his career.

His range of designs included day dresses to evening dresses and couture to ready-to-wear styles. His enormous talent will surely be missed.
