Oscar de la Renta

The icon of American fashion, Oscar de la Renta, left the Dominican Republic when he was 19 to study in Spain, where he focused on painting at the San Fernando Academy in Madrid.  He quickly adapted to the world of fashion design and started to draw for leading Spanish fashion houses. 

The exotic colors and lights from the Dominican Republic combined with the gypsy motives of Spain, helped to influence his designs.  In 1973 he founded the company Oscar de la Renta Couture, and expanded with soft goods, men’s clothing and perfumes.  In 1977, he introduced Oscar, a perfume that conquered the world.
