USA: Oscar de la Renta (1932-2014)

Óscar Arístides Renta Fiallo (22 July 1932 – 20 October 2014), known professionally as Oscar de la Renta, was a Dominican fashion designer. De la Renta became internationally known in the 1960s as one of the couturiers who dressed Jacqueline Kennedy. An award-winning designer, he worked for Lanvin and Balmain. US Postal Service honored him with a Stamps Set including 11 images - an evocative black-and-white portrait of de la Renta and 10 details from some of his most exquisite gowns.
