Oscar de la Renta died today at the age of 82. The death of someone so important and iconic is always sad but his death is especially sad for me. His name was the first name in fashion that I can remember. When I was a little girl I clearly remember being in my mother’s room while she was getting ready for a special event. She was putting on a beautiful red dress and she told me it was made by Oscar de la Renta. I remember how happy it made her when she put it on. Rest in peace Oscar, you reached more peoples lives than you could ever imagine, and for that I thank you.
