“My greatest strength,” said designer, Oscar de la Renta, “is knowing who I am and where I come from – my island”.
Born in the Dominican Republic, the youngest of seven children, Oscar de la Renta made his name designing ready-to-wear and haute couture gowns for many of the biggest names in fashion. His list of celebrity fans is too long to list, but includes everyone from A-list actresses to some of America’s stylish First Ladies.
In 2002, de la Renta released his line of homewares, tablewares and more. Inspired by his youth, his homeland, his travels and, of course, the world of fashion, it’s one of the designer’s most triumphant creations to date.
