The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, opens The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta, an exhibition celebrating the illustrious life and career of the influential fashion designer. Presented in collaboration with Oscar de la Renta, LLC, the exhibition features nearly 70 ensembles sourced from de la Renta’s corporate and personal archives, the archives of French label Pierre Balmain, private lenders, and the collection of the MFAH.
The exhibition is curated by André Leon Talley, former American editor-at-large for Vogue magazine and lifelong friend of the designer, in collaboration with Cindi Strauss, Sara and Bill Morgan Curator of Decorative Arts, Craft and Design at the MFAH, with assistance by fashion historians Molly Sorkin and Jennifer Park.
The ensembles on view are organized into four thematic sections, each enriched by a variety of visual assets, including images of de la Renta’s private gardens in Connecticut. Paintings and decorative arts from the Museum’s collection provide additional context for the artistic and cultural influences prevalent throughout the designs on display.
