Oscar de La Renta was the man who made dresses that made women look like princesses. From the recent gown worn by the newly appointed Mrs Clooney to some of the most iconic red carpet dresses which will take a firm place in the history of fashion. He was the designer that never failed to meet my sometimes difficult expectations and his class and elegance as a person was something I have eternally admired. After a battle with a long illness, Oscar left us today, but his legacy of fashion and presence in the world’s most dynamic industry will live on. He will always remain the world’s most loved designer, and a sad loss to our industry, and those who loved him.
