- Oscar de la Renta
- New York Fashion Week Fall 2012
Oscar de la Renta is the king of femininity. Everything he does is for a woman, he makes her feel beautiful and strong. He has dedicated his life to this and has remained timeless in the process. The way he has managed to stay on top and relevant for all of these years is completely inspiring. He consistently creates garments that are not only classic and ladylike but fresh and new. His campaigns always feature the best of the up and coming models and has embraced the online world like no other designer of his stature. With the efforts of the OscarPRGirl “brand” he has emerged on all major social networking and media websites and gained an unprecedented following. By streaming his runway shows each season live via the internet he has managed to draw in an entirely new audience and made fashion something that anyone can access and appreciate. A man for all seasons, ages and times - Oscar de la Renta is at the top of his gain and is showing no sign of slowing down.
Now that I have completely gushed about the designer lets have a look at this seasons collection. Setting the base for the runway show the models had their hair swept up and combed back into faux bobs and kept neat with jewel encrusted ribbons. Dewey fresh skin and youthful pink cheeks offset the white and black fishnets that each and every model wore. The most adorably girlie shades of bubble gum pink, cotton candy blue and the best greens (because Oscar really does the best greens as noted time and time again) were featured on most garments while black pieces featured luxurious jewel toned printed on gems. Each piece felt distinctly fairytale like and was accessorized by either an exquisite cocktail ring, delicate yet bold necklace or statement earrings. Chunky beading featuring bits of lace and pearls were clustered on jackets and 60s inspired sophisticated dresses. One thing that should definitely be noted is that the smiles on most of the models faces showed just how much they were enjoying themselves, evidently another effect of working with Oscar.
