Yesterday the fashion world said goodbye to legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, he was 82. He spent half a decade dressing every first lady since Jacqueline Kennedy and countless celebrities, and most recently Amal Alamuddin-Clooney, to adorning the runways with his fashion creations. De la Renta also branched into fragrance, a home line, and furniture.
He was admired by contemporaries and adored by fashionistas. De la Renta was the winner of numerous Cody awards, the fashion equivalent of the Oscars. He was said to be a true gentleman in every sense of the word.
