Honoring Oscar de la Renta

Ad

This post is in honor of the late, great fashion designer Oscar de la Renta who passed on today. The Dominican Republic born de la Renta left an indelible mark on the world of fashion and beyond and his influence will carry over for decades and centuries to come. Having left his homeland for Spain to study painting at 18, de la Renta went on to hone his skills in fashion design later resulting in an incredibly successful enterprise carrying his namesake. His beautifully designed clothing has been worn by a vast array of distinguished women and celebrities alike.

In this post, we've curated a selection of some of our favorite sketches in hopes to inspire the next generation of burgeoning fashion designers. It all begins with simple pen to paper. Vaya con Dios, Oscar!
