To accompany a full-scale exhibition celebrating the designs of Oscar de la Renta, this magnificent volume features the work that defined the fashion icon’s long career, during which he dressed celebrities, U.S. first ladies, and socialites from around the world. Thematic sections trace de la Renta’s journey from his upbringing in the Dominican Republic; to the rise of his career in Spain, where he gained his first commissions; to his formative years in the world’s preeminent fashion houses; and eventually to the creation of the company that bears his name.
The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta is on view at the MFAH from October 8, 2017, to March 18, 2018.
Specially priced at $60. For a limited time only.
