We are deeply saddened by the loss of Oscar de la Renta, a fashion icon, true artist and gentleman. After battling cancer for 10 years, he passed away at age 82. The legendary fashion designer worked for Balenciaga, Lanvin, and Balmain in the past. It was announced last week, Peter Copping will act as the new creative director of de la Renta’s namesake label. “He died exactly as he lived: with tremendous grace, great dignity and very much on his own terms”
Oscar de la Renta’s career spanned several administrations and many First Ladies looked to the American fashion designer for just the right thing to wear on important occasions.
