Our local SCAD Museum of Art is currently exhibiting some of Oscar De La Renta's iconic dresses. I had the priveledge of going to check them out. As a bonus I went on our Super Museum day which meant the visit was free for all who came so the family tagged along with me. To be quite honest I haven't really followed De La Renta's career and need to do a little research to understand his design evolution. But as far as the exhibit goes I liked several of his pieces and appreciate his workmanship. As an aspiring designer myself I definitely respect his work and the reputation he built for himself. His artistry was and continues to be such a gift. If you find yourself in the Savannah area his work will be on display through May so it's worth checking out. Anyhow here's some pics below and I don't have alot of commentary to go with them since it was full of people and I didn't have a ton of time to spare. I'm considering going back so I can spend much longer studying each piece. And yes I must admit I checked the finishings (visually only, touching not allowed) on these pieces and they're impeccable. You can tell an exceptional garment not only by the way it's sewn but more importantly in my opinion by the way it is finished!
