Oscar de la Renta Passes Away at 82
Diagnosed with cancer in 2006, the fashion icon passed away this morning surrounded by his family at the age of 82. Born in the Dominican Republic in 1932, de la Renta left home at 18 to study painting in Madrid. It was there he developed a love of fashion design and began an apprenticeship with Cristóbal Balenciaga, who became his mentor, and then, landed a job with Lanvin in Paris. His contribution to the fashion world is incredible, and he will be dearly missed.
