Oscar de la Renta - Fashion designer that will forever be remembered

Oscar de la Renta

From a very young age I have been interested in fashion and one of the fashion designers I always looked up to was Oscar de la Renta.  The news of his passing on the 20th of October 2014 was a huge shock to everybody.  Oscar truly was and still is a fashion legend and was a house hold name from the start.

De la Renta died of complications from cancer on October 20, 2014 at his home in Kent, Connecticut at the age of 82.  He had been diagnosed with cancer in 2006.  A year later, at the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), Executive Director (Fern Mallis) called him "The Sultan of Suave". At that event, he spoke of his cancer, saying:
“Yes, I had cancer. Right now, I am totally clean. The only realities in life are that you are born, and that you die. We always think we are going to live forever. The dying aspect we will never accept. The one thing about having this kind of warning is how you appreciate every single day of life.”

Here are some of his designs:
