IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: OSCAR DE LA RENTA - FASHION DESIGNER

Rate this Entry

Delarenta
It's rare for a person's name to also be a well-known brand. Dominican Republican native Oscar de la Renta's name is one of the most recognized in fashion and the brand has always been equated with high style.



Oscar de la Renta left the Domincan Republic at age 18 to study painting in Spain. It was there he started sketching for Spanish fashion houses and then moved on to Paris as his career in fashion design advanced. In 1963, he came to New York to design for Elizabeth Arden. Two years later, he debuted his ready-to-wear fashion label. In 2001, he expanded hsi label to include an accessories line and, more recently, he has rolled out a furniture collection and home fragrance line.



In 1996, Mr. de la Renta received the Lifetime Achevement Award from the Hispanic Hertitage Society  and has been the Grand Marshall of New York Ciety's Hispanic Day Parade. And he has used his wealth to help build a school and day-care center for 1200 children in his native Dominican Republic.



Oscar de la Renta's immigration history is also interesting. He is the son of a US citizen father and Dominican mother. But because of the laws in place at the time he was born, his father did not transmit citizenship to the designer. De la Renta is a US citizen today, but a naturalized one.
