Today I have a special post to share with you! This past Wednesday, Designer Diva (Vicki) and I set out on another adventure together! This time it was to the Mint Museum to see the fantastic, Oscar de la Renta exhibit!
Oscar de la Rent is well known and very much celebrated in the fashion world for his talent and his imaginative designs that included classy day wear dresses as well as glamorous evening gowns. Coupled with his ability to evolve with the changing times and seasons -his career spanned over five decades!- made him one of the most sought after designers!
I was amazed by the display on Wednesday! It was remarkable! I really enjoyed his use of various textures, layers, and fabrics.
Most of the night, I fantasized what it would be like to wear one of these fabulous gowns. They are all so elegant, its no wonder he is a highly sought after designer! Of course, many of his designs have been worn by various celebrities, but he also designed gowns for first ladies, Laura Bush and Hilary Clinton.
When he passed away in 2014, he was remembered by countless celebrities, designers, friends, fans, and of course, his family.
The exhibit will run until early July if you are interested in checking it out!
(Psst! On Wednesday nights, it is free admission!)
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! =)
