An exhibition of fashion designs by Oscar de la Renta, organized in close collaboration with Oscar de la Renta LLC and the designer’s family. The exhibition is curated by André Leon Talley, former editor-at-large for American Vogue and current contributing editor, and a lifelong friend of de la Renta. It contains dozens of fashions made during the span of his career in Spain, Paris, and New York.
