The Little Manhattanite

"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." - Coco Chanel

Today fashion lost one of the greatest couturiers of the last century. I’m forever grateful to have had the chance to wear his creations and I’ll always remember Mr. De La Renta as a gentleman and a class act. Oscar was never afraid to speak his mind or share his point of view - whether that be on the runway or on the written page. He was a pillar of New York fashion and will be sorely missed. #OscardelaRenta #ODLR

"We have to celebrate all that women have achieved in such a short period of time. This is the most exciting time to be dressing a woman. Never before has a woman been so in control of her destiny. My inspiration is always the anonymous woman on the street, the woman with a busy, full life. I think about her needs and what she will want to wear. My role as a designer has always been to design clothes that address a woman’s life and make her feel beautiful - that is what continues to inspire me creatively…”
Oscar de la Renta, in an undated interview with Vivian Chen
