Oscar De La Renta is one of the top designers of wedding couture and has had almost every female celebrity turn to his creations. His wedding line blends a romantic sense of tradition with something modern and edgy. He’s one of the top designers in the world for bridal wear and accessories.
Born in Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic, Oscar De La Renta moved away from his Caribbean roots to branch out into the fashion world of the USA, where he became internationally known in the 1960s as one of the couturiers to dress the first lady Jackie Kennedy. Later on in his life, he won numerous awards for his designs and would go on to dress film stars and even royalty.
The beauty of Oscar De La Renta’s designs is that he has something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a traditional bridal dress with white lace and embroidery detail, with ball gown cuts and chapel trails. Other traditional white brides dresses with untraditional cuts include the White Satin pump, with an ivory silk faille trumpet gown with long sleeves decorated with Chantilly lace overlay.
For something a little more gamine, you can try a white satin mule with silver and crystal embroidery. This design is playful, with its camellia cotton guipure sweetheart dress over a tulle petticoat. A far cry from the traditional ballroom cuts!
The exciting thing about Oscar De La Renta is his alternative designs, whether they deviate not only in color, but also in design from the traditional bridal wear. One of his dresses in the 2013 collection is a crimson crush pleated silk velvet gown in a column design, finished off with an ivory crush pleated tulle trim. The dress might not make you think of virginal bridal dresses, but conveys images of romantic heroines with flowing red hair in Pre-Raphaelite paintings, ideal for brides looking for a romantic look beyond the cliché.
Or, if you’re looking for something seasonal for the spring, then the pink and blue organza flower gown, detailed with sequins and embroidery is ideal for a springtime wedding. Blue is in this season, and Oscar De La Renta offers many original, beautiful, feminine and sexy dresses for any bride looking for something blue instead of the traditional white.
To many Oscar De La Renta is the optimal wedding dress designer to many brides, since he captures the imagination of women all over looking to walk down the aisle.
