Oscar de la Renta
Oscar de la Renta, in full Oscar Aristides Ortiz de la Renta Fiallo, (born July 22, 1932, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic—died October 20, 2014, Kent, Connecticut, U.S.), Dominican-born American fashion designer whose work, blending European luxury with American ease, helped define standards of elegant dressing among socialites, U.S. first ladies, and red-carpet celebrities during a career that spanned some 50 years.
De la Renta received an international fashion education. At 18 he left the Dominican Republic to study painting at the San Fernando Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Madrid. There, he began working as an illustrator for fashion houses, a position that led eventually to the post of assisting Spain’s leading designer, Cristóbal Balenciaga. In 1961 de la Renta settled in Paris, where he worked as the assistant to Lanvin-Castillo’s head designer, Antonio del Castillo, before moving to New York City in 1963 to design the couture and ready-to-wear collections for Elizabeth Arden. In 1965 he established his own eponymous company in New York.
De la Renta’s label quickly came to represent casual luxury to society women—many of them friends of his then-wife, Françoise de Langlade, editor of French Vogue—among whom he effortlessly circulated. He first gained attention in the late 1960s and early ’70s for his gypsy- and Russian-inspired collections, which suggested the cosmopolitan sophistication that would characterize his creative output over the following decades. These collections were always distinctly modern, yet they also possessed a romantic, feminine quality, reflecting his grounding in both American sportswear and European couture. Consistent elements of his vision include a vibrant colour palette, delicate silk prints, the use of ruffles, and soft silhouettes. He is perhaps best known for his evening wear and suits for women, which over the years became wardrobe staples for his faithful clientele of socialites and celebrities (notably actresses Amy Adams, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Penélope Cruz) and for former first ladies Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Nancy Reagan, and Hillary Clinton. (In 2014 first lady Michelle Obama also donned one of his gowns.)
Although he settled in New York, de la Renta also marketed his work in Latin America, where it became very popular, and remained active in his native Dominican Republic, where his charitable activities and personal achievements earned him the Juan Pablo Duarte Order of Merit and the Order of Cristóbal Colón. Active in the American fashion community, he served as president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) from 1973 to 1976 and 1986 to 1988, and in 1990 the CFDA gave him its Lifetime Achievement Award. He became the first American designer to be awarded a major post at a French couture house when in 1993 he became head designer at Pierre Balmain. Proving the longevity of his career, he won the CFDA Womanswear Designer of the Year Award in 2000.
Though de la Renta battled cancer for the last eight years of his life, his fashion empire prospered; his business grew by 50 percent (to $150 million in sales) during that period, and he remained a sought-after designer. Among his last notable creations was the ivory tulle bridal gown worn by British-based human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin when she wed actor George Clooney in 2014. De la Renta’s label also produced menswear, accessories, perfume, and fine china.
