Oscar de la Renta’s collections are filled with timeless pieces and the structure of each garment is simply unparalleled by most high fashion designers’. When you wear his creations, from his sunglasses and accessories to his ball gowns and outerwear, de la Renta allows his clients, followers, and admirers to feel powerful and luxurious. With that said, when I heard that Oscar was partnering with Lee Jofa to launch Oscar de la Renta Home, my heart rate must have jumped to dangerous levels. On top of that exciting news came something truly thrilling! The skirts, which were designed exclusively for Lee Jofa’s announcement regarding the release of the new Home collection, are going to be auctioned off for charity until November 30, 2010. The proceeds from the auction will go to Casa del Nino, a wonderful charity completely benefiting children of the Dominican Republic.
The skirts are all handmade by Oscar, himself, and the make- up of each designer size 4 skirt is a combination of linen and silk fabrics, accented with intricate beading and embroidery, accompanied by velvet and linen stripes. Extraordinary creations complimented by a philanthropic twist. What could be more beautiful?
