Homage To Oscar de la Renta And His Eyewear

The fashion world lost an iconic designer on October 20, 2015. He was trained by Balenciaga, worked with Lanvin and Balmain, Elizabeth Arden, starting his signature label in 1965. His creations became internationally famous in the 1960’s, dressing celebrities from film stars to royalty. Jacqueline Kennedy, Hilary Clinton and Laura Bush all wore Oscar de la Renta. Recently Amal Alamuddin, wore an Oscar de la Renta bridal gown to her marriage to George Clooney.

In our homage to Oscar de la Renta, we found some vintage eyewear posters and matched them up with some of his quotes.

‘The qualities I most admire in women are confidence and kindness.’
