About Oscar de la Renta: Dominican born Oscar de la Renta began his career as an apprentice to great designer Cristobal Balenciaga before designing for Jane Derby in New York.  Jane Derby died in 1965 and Oscar de la Renta took over designing for the line.  The label read Oscar de la Renta for Jane Derby and in 1968 he began using his name only.  In 1973 Oscar de la Renta was one of the American designers alongside Halston to show in Versailles and to go up against the great French couturiers like Yves Saint Laurent and Givenchy.  The NY Times headlines read "The French Were Good, Americans Were Great".  From 1993 to 2002 Oscar de la Renta designed the haute couture collections for Pierre Balmain.  Oscar de la Renta is one of the most renowned American designers known for his ladylike, romantic and red carpet ready style.
