A beautifully curated collection of Oscar de la Renta’s work opened to a select few tonight at San Francisco’s de Young Museum. From the colorful and classic caftans to the romantic ballgowns, every piece showed us how the Dominican designer’s work maintain relevance from the start of his designing career until his death in October 2014.  Over the course of 60+ years, de la Renta drew inspirations from cultures around the world such as Spanish, Russian, Chinese and French and added his unique twist to make them his own.  The resulting creations were nothing short of brilliant.  There was not a single piece that wasn’t coveted by every woman walking through the exhibit.  If you appreciate fashion and have the time and the resources, this is an exhibit worth making the trip for.

Oscar de la Renta: The Retrospective will be open to the public from March 12th to May 30th, 2016 in the Herbst Exhibition Galleries at de Young Museum.  Click here for exhibit details and info.
