We All Loved Oscar!
by Elena Sendona
Very elegant, talented, and prolific! This designer belongs to the Pantheon of Couturiers, an exceptional case in the history of American fashion. He has dressed many beautiful and important women, and they all loved him. From the wedding dresses, to the evening gowns, and the cocktail stunners, the style was timeless and distinctive. He excelled at classic silhouettes, rich embroidery, and dreamy colors. He payed attention to the detail, and he was immaculate himself on every special occasion. His last memorable dress was Amal Clooney’s romantic wedding gown, yet that stands among an array of retrospective-worthy creations.
The successors at the helm continue in their own fresh way the legacy of the brand he created. Weither in a fit & flare stunner or in a sleek collumn dress, the lady wearing an Oscar number is undeniably ultra chic. These dresses pass as heirlooms from generation to generation. Today he would have celebrated his 87th birthday. We miss his vibrancy, sophistication, and charisma. He took fashion aesthetics to a level that trancends seasons and eras.
