During his lifetime, Oscar de la Renta dressed some of the world’s most fashionable women—Audrey Hepburn, Jacqueline Kennedy, Sharon Stone, Anne Hathaway, and Michelle Obama, to name a few. His unapologetically feminine creations are notable for the voluminous silhouettes. Silk faille and taffeta ball gowns in a plethora of vibrant colors and delicate prints with floral motifs are also signatures of the fashion house.
To honor the work of Oscar de la Renta, Harvey Nichols at Mall of the Emirates in Dubai will exhibit a special collection of his most iconic dresses. Featuring both runway and red carpet favorites, the Glamorous Gowns exhibit will be held in-store from April 13th for one month. If you are an avid fan of his debutant style, add this exhibit to your fashion diary and prepare for an education in the art of being a lady.
