Oscar de la Renta, a man well known for his designer dresses has passed away on Monday evening at the age of 82. Mr. de la Renta was surrounded by his family, friends and dogs when he died in his home. According to the NY Times, the cause of death was cancer. He has been battling cancer for the past eight years and has been resilient until now.
Oscar de la Renta is very well known for his red carpet dresses and evening dresses that are worn by multiple celebrities like: Emma Watson, Zooey Deschanel, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Cameron Diaz. His designs were also worn by various royal family members and wives of politicians. The most recent design that you may have seen by him was for Amal Alamuddin`s wedding dress when she married George Clooney.
Probably the main thing that set Oscar de la Renta apart from other designers is that `he knew the difference between the runway and fashion.` As once said by Mr. de la Renta: `Never, ever confuse what happens on a runway with fashion. A runway is spectacle. Its only fashion when a woman puts it on. Being well dressed hasnt much to do with having good clothes. Its a question of good balance and good common sense.` A lot of designers think that you can take what you design on the runway and expect every day regular people to wear them like it`s `normal.` However, that`s not the case. Take Moschino for example.
May you rest in peace Oscar de la Renta.
