When I was a little girl, I was fascinated by Oscar de la Renta’s designs. I would grab my mother’s fashion magazines and stare at his ball gowns, admiring the ruffles and taffeta skirts. As I learned of his passing at 82, I was deeply saddened. It’s true I never met him but I hoped that some day I would.
