Showing on Tuesday was Oscar de la Renta, with creative director Peter Copping channelling late designer Oscar's visions on the runway. Sticking to the silhouettes that made the fashion house famous, Copping presented neat, feminine jackets, skirts and strapless cocktail dresses with bodice to a delighted crowd. With a colour palette including pink, purple and turquoise the Autumn/Winter 16 line was all about embracing women's girly side.
The early part of the show left us in anticipation, waiting for the vibrant colors to make an entrance. The carnation reds, marigolds, and turquoises that ODLR is know for. But he made up for the slow beginning with some beautiful cocktail numbers and gowns.
These leaned more toward the Versailles, couture, 18th-century side of his equation, and they included a Bordeaux silk draped bustier worn with a weightless organza skirt shot through with tinsel, a strapless black dress hand-stitched with gold metal thread and boasting heat transfer crystals, and a dusty rose floral jacquard draped gown accessorized by a choker that fastened in back with a matching dusty rose taffeta bow.
