The man himself: Oscar de la Renta

February 11, 2010 at 9:34 PM | Posted in Abs Fab, Fashionista, I support this | 2 Comments

I have loved Oscar de la Renta ever since my mother ripped a picture of one of his beautiful designs out of Vogue, and went searching for the right materials along with my grandmother to create my prom dress. And she did. Beautifully. So imagine my excitement when six years later I’m in his office and telling him the story and showing him the picture of the magazine tear out (yes i saved it for 6 years) and showing him pictures of my prom dress.

I was utterly delighted. He was utterly charming. He oooohed and aaaaaahed at the replica and grinned when I proudly said “soy Panamena” (He’s Dominican). I then had the honor and pleasure of seeing his designs before the runway show next week. He never fails to deliver. Oscar is a gentleman, poetic and regal and a jokester. His aura is even more astounding than his pieces. If that is even possible.

On cloud nine with Oscar
