RIP Oscar de la Renta 1932-2014

Today is a sad day in the fashion and Dominican community. The first time I found out Renta was Dominican I thought to myself what better representation than a Dominican man dressing women all over the world, in that same world where men could barely dress themselves. Stereotypical views were pushed to the side when Oscar walked into the fashion industry, you know the one where Dominican men only play baseball and let’s be real, where most love to undress women. He believed elegance, sophistication, and beauty was every woman’s desire.

Although he was known for his evening wear and pantsuits, my personal favorite were his wedding gowns. I’ve always dreamed of walking down the aisle in one of his creations. An honor of wedding season I’ve gathered my favorite of his designs from the Bridal 2014, Fall 2014 and Bridal 2015 Collections.
