Posted on

Designer icon Oscar de la Renta passed away on Tuesday 21st October at the age of 82 and the fashion industry mourns a true legend. De la Renta has dressed famous women for many decades, from Jackie Kennedy to Katy Perry.

In his early days, De la Renta worked for Spanish couture master Cristobal Balenciaga, Lanvin, and Balmain before establishing his own brand in 1965.

He was known for his feminine and colourful creations that have graced countless red carpets and royal affairs throughout the years.

Trends have come and gone during Oscars' long career but his trademark craftsmanship and love of colour have remained the same making him one of the most loved American designers of our time.
