Just like I enjoy a beautiful painting or garden, I find Oscar de la Renta's dresses and fashion designs beautiful. In New York City, walking through the Oscar de la Renta collection at Saks, I have always found inspiration...his rich color choices, the feel of the elegant fabrics, or the details of the embroidary….it has often provided the spark of a new idea.
When I went up to the third floor of my studio this week I found this page of a magazine that I had ripped out over a year ago just sitting there on the table. There it was right in front of me after hearing of the death of Oscar de la Renta...a reminder of how I have always admired his design work.
The crisp mornings and cool nights are beginning to fall upon us...this is truly my favorite season of the year. I still continue to wear shorts as long into the season as I can and combine them with a lightweight vest. No heavy coats yet, no holiday lights or decorations...just crisp fresh air and changing colors around us.
