Oscar De La Renta Autumn/Winter 2017 Ready to Wear Collection
Leading brand of fashion world Oscar de la Renta showcased latest autumn/winter collection at the stage of New York Fashion Week 2017 .Things did not start well at Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia’s Oscar de la Renta debut tonight. A curtain failed to open, which prevented half the audience from seeing anything more than intermittent glimpses of the models as they walked by.
Garcia and Kim worked with Mr. de la Renta for many years before his death in 2014. They left the brand when Peter Copping was brought in as creative director and subsequently launched and have had some success with their own label, Monse, in the interim. After Copping’s abrupt exit last July, they were brought back into the company fold and sat front row at the studio-designed Spring show in September. This evening, in what qualifies as a first for the industry, they sequentially presented Fall collections for Monse and Oscar de la Renta in the same venue. They’ve been charged with bringing some youthful verve to the Oscar brand—with freshening it up. Despite their training and the many months of prep time, this was a disappointing first attempt.
