Running until October, a show at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Texas explores the world of 82-year-old designer Oscar de la Renta.
Honouring a designer famed for dressing First Ladies all the way back to Nancy Reagan, the exhibition has found a fitting home at the Presidential Center.
A retrospective of the Dominican-American fashion designer Oscar de la Renta’s work, the exibition features mannequins displaying over 60 of his classic outfits, including pieces worn by Laura Bush, Hilary Clinton and Nancy Reagan when they greeted leaders, dignitaries and diplomats from around the world. To keep up the family ties, Jenna Bush’s wedding dress is also on display.
“I have always felt my role as a designer is to do the very best I can for a woman to make her look her best. Fashion is only fashion once a woman puts it on,” said the designer.
