“Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.”
We lost a legend yesterday evening. Oscar de la Renta, whose career began in the early 1950s, passed away at his home in Kent, Connecticut. He was 82.
“Never, ever confuse what happens on a runway with fashion,” Mr. de la Renta once said. “A runway is spectacle. It’s only fashion when a woman puts it on. Being well dressed hasn’t much to do with having good clothes. It’s a question of good balance and good common sense.”
