Oscar de la Renta
My customers are successful workingwomen.
Regardless of how good or bad a collection might be, it’s a letdown after the show is over. It’s done. Something you’ve worked on for months is just over.
Online media is increasingly influential in fashion.
I am not interested in shock tactics. I just want to make beautiful clothes.
I wanted this, I wanted to do this, but my work is me, and it has to be right.
Although I have no plans to tweet, I am fascinated by developments on the Internet.
If you want to establish an international presence you can’t do so from New York. You need the consecration of Paris.
I don’t really know how to do casual clothes.
We’re dealing with sophisticated customers. What’s most important to these women is individuality. I have to create things she’ll want to wear, no matter who she is.
I do not have one theme for each season, I just try to make beautiful clothes all year round.
I have this complex that if I walk into a place wearing a colorful shirt someone will stop me and say, ‘I’m sorry, but the Latin band comes through the other door.’
I was surrounded by sisters. My childhood was all women.
Every season I am inspired by women.
There is always an emotional element to anything that you make.
I’m a very restless person. I’m always doing something. The creative process never stops.
