We’re saddened by the passing of the legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta. De la Renta was renowned for blending European luxury – including beautiful fabrics, ornamentation, and details – with American ease, all with the aim of making a woman look her best. The Museum is honored to have works by him in its Costume and Textiles collection.
