The classiest gentleman in the fashion industry has passed away. Oscar de la Renta has died at age 82 after a nearly decade long battle with cancer at his house in Kent, Connecticut.
Although fashion has lost one of its greatest, the world will always remember the amazing legacy the Dominican-born designer has left us: romantic, feminine, simple yet elegant dresses, attention to the last detail and breath-taking designs that will forever remain as runway eye candy.
In his honor, here are my favorite 5 quotes by him.
Rest in peace, Oscar de la Renta!
