A Feathered Farewell to Oscar de la Renta

The fashion industry lost one of it’s greatest on Monday October 20th 2014; Oscar de la Renta.

His fashions were feminine and flooded with pure elegance. Here is our tribute to Oscar and his “Feathered” designs from over the years.

“I don’t really know how to do casual clothes.”- Oscar de la Renta
