INSPIRING QUOTES (08): Beautiful quotes from Oscar de la Renta
The late designer was a true inspiration who championed feminism and celebrated the modern woman.
"You have to walk like you have three men walking behind you.”
“There is always an emotional element to anything that you make.”
“Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.” (2009) “My job as a designer is to make a woman feel her very best.” (2012) “I am not interested in shock tactics. I just want to make beautiful clothes." (1963) “When I started, the woman went to the store to buy a dress. She saw it in pink and red and then she remembered that the husband, who is probably going to pay for the dress, loves it in pink. So she buys the pink. Today, the same woman goes to the store and remembers the husband likes pink and she buys the red.” (2011) "The qualities I most admire in women are confidence and kindness.” "We're dealing with sophisticated customers. What's most important to these women is individuality. I have to create things she'll want to wear, no matter who she is." (2004) “I want to make clothes that people will wear, not styles that will make a big splash on the runway.” (2013) Photos found on Twitter and Harper's Bazaar
