Oscar de la Renta – saying goodbye to the legend!

Yesterday the fashion world has lost one its most talented designer, Oscar de la Renta, passed away at the age 82!  It’s funny how just yesterday, I was looking at his runway picture standing beside Karlie Kloss and I was thinking, how talented is this man and how I wish to, one day, wear one of his creations!

This Dominican Republic native, had moved to Spain at the age of 18 to study at the l’Accademia di San Fernando and later to France, in order to work for Lanvin, Balmain and soon conquer the world under his own name!
