Harvey Nichols – Dubai pays tribute to Oscar de la Renta and his career as a leading fashion icon with a new in-store event titled Legendary Style.
Fashion designer Oscar De La Renta, who sadly passed away at the age of 82 in November 2014, following a long battle with cancer will be remembered via an elegant display of some of his most famous dresses in Legendary Style, an event that is said to be the first of its kind in Dubai.
As well as highlighting memorable red carpet dresses and runway ensembles from previous Oscar de la Renta collections, the event-cum-exhibit will also showcase new pieces from the spring/summer 2015 collection.
The aim is to illustrate Oscar’s unique sense of style and love of beauty. He is the man who famously said: “Walk like you have three men walking behind you.”
One of the most prominent and influential designers of our time, Oscar de la Renta is a name that needs little introduction. The award-winning designer left behind a formidable legacy in his highly successful career that spanned across five decades.
Oscar’s impeccably refined aesthetic and techniques created a new benchmark for red carpet, evening and bridal fashions. Combining structural with classic, print with solid, dark with light; his designs are a manifestation of the beauty between elegance and style. It is no wonder that his designs are a favourite amongst A-list celebrities including Sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway and Cameron Diaz. He once said: “I have always felt my role as a designer is to do the very best I can for a woman. Fashion is only fashion once a woman puts it on.”
The Oscar de la Renta tribute Legendary Style will run for a month at Harvey Nichols – Dubai from April 13 to May 13 2015.
