Celebrated designer Oscar de la Renta was worn by every woman of style from Rihanna to Amal Clooney before he passed away in October. While he may be gone, his influence on style will live on forever. Voguecontributing editor and SCAD trustee Andre Leon Talley curated the first posthumous Oscar de la Renta exhibit on display at the Savannah College of Art & Design Museum of Art.
"I discovered that Mrs. Bush had great style and her style evolved with Mr. De la Renta," Talley said.
According to WWD.com, Talley became close to de la Renta after meeting him in 1974. De la Renta's first wife Francoise de Langlade reportedly made a habit of calling him first thing in the morning to learn what he had worked on the night before.
De la Renta died last year at the age of 82 following a long battle with cancer, which he was reportedly diagnosed with in 2006. He is survived by his wife Annette de la Renta, three step-children, and his adopted son Moises.
