The Savannah College of Art and Design, in Georgia, is currently hosting the first posthumous Oscar De La Renta exhibit, entitled Oscar de la Renta: His Legendary World of Style. Curated by André Leon Talley, the exclusive exhibition is the result of several visits to De La Renta affectionate clients’ closets.
Talley, a close friend of the designer, collected the pieces which he thought highlighted the singularity of De La Renta, and he got them all paying a personal visit to those women who wore his dresses with pride. From Nicole Kidman to Hillary Clinton, many borrowed their special wardrobe piece for a right cause, wedding dresses included.
The exhibition will continue until May 3, and a related book will be published by Rizzoli.
