Oscar de la Renta Perfume and Designer History

Oscar de la Renta was born July 22, 1932 in the Dominican Republic. He moved to Spain in 1950 to study painting but quickly changed over to fashion design. He began sketching fashion items for a number of leading Spanish fashion houses, until landing an apprenticeship with Spain's most renowned couturier, Cristóbal Balenciaga. He then became a couture assistant to Antonio Castillo at the Lanvin in Paris. In 1963, he went to work for Elizabeth Arden as a designer of custom clothing. After two years with Arden he launched his own label, founding his company with partner Ben Shaw in 1966.
Together they design ready-to-wear apparel and couture for women and men. The Oscar de la Renta name appears on a number of products including swimwear, jewelry, eyewear, lingerie, home furnishings, luggage, furs, and fragrances like Oscar de la Renta perfume and Oscar de la Renta cologne. Other collections are sold under the Pink Label and OSCAR by Oscar de la Renta brands.
