Oscar de la Renta at the de Young
While visiting home a few months ago in March, I decided to check out the Oscar de la Renta exhibit at the de Young in San Francisco. I have always loved his style of dresses and this exhibit showcased a myriad of dresses he had designed from his earlier years to before he had died. It was a beautiful and elaborate arrangement and the designers did an excellent job at setting up the displays.
Each mannequin at the show was dressed up with such precision and detail that they almost looked like surreal models. The dresses fit a certain time period that was expressed by paintings propped up behind some of the mannequins. There were even some mannequins positioned on benches or couches, setting a nonchalant tone to a very exquisite vibe. Oscar de la Renta's style shined through every dress and his remarkable fashion sense was complimented with each description and well thought-out design.
