Oscar de la Renta Honored with SCAD Fashion Exhibition
Known for his exquisite taste and impeccably beautiful construction, fashion designer Oscar de la Renta was a man of great talent and many achievements. So, it comes as no surprise that an exhibition has been curated showing off some of his most gorgeous creations. Curated by SCAD Trustee André Leon Talley at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), "Oscar de la Renta: His Legendary World of Style" honors the designer's deep bond and relationship with his clients, his closest friends, and family.
The collection is packed with several pieces you're sure to recognize. Highlighting more than 70 de la Renta ensembles, the exhibit includes dresses worn by Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Oprah Winfrey, Kirsten Dunst, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Nicole Kidman. Plus, it features garments from the wardrobes of two former First Ladies, Laura Bush and Hillary Rodham Clinton, who dressed almost exclusively in ODLR.
"Oscar de la Renta designed clothes for women who wanted to look and feel beautiful, at their most elegant best," Talley said in a statement. "With Oscar de la Renta, you always felt life was lived in the sun. He loved his family and filled life with beauty from his gardens, his collections, paintings and music. He loved to sing."
"Oscar de la Renta: His Legendary World of Style" is on view now through May 3 at the SCAD Museum of Art. Check out a preview below, and for more information visit scad.edu.
