newmiu asked: i was so sad when i heard about oscar de la renta's death :( im really going to miss seeing his beautiful dresses.... just out of curiousity, what was your favorite collection by him?
The Diana Vreeland era of OdlR is a pinnacle moment in American fashion and therefore one of my favorites. However, OdlR is impressive as he spanned more than 50 years at the helm of his own namesake label seamlessly transitioning apparel as generations of starlets, dignitaries, socialites, etc. passed through his atelier and remained interesting, creative and in many ways ahead of the curve. He is an indisputable leader in evening wear, he contributed to icons such as Jackie O and Elizabeth Arden amongst countless others. There are no favorites. He’s a favorite. Fashion would not be what it is without him bringing Paris to America 50 years ago and consistently reminding us of where we’ve been and foreshadowing where we’re going.
