Subject: US designer Oscar de la Renta dies aged 82

Written By: Philip Eno on 10/20/14 at 10:00 pm

US fashion designer Oscar de la Renta, who dressed former first ladies Jackie Kennedy and Hillary Clinton, has died aged 82, US media report.

De La Renta, who most recently designed Amal Clooney's wedding dress, was diagnosed with cancer in 2006.

Born in the Dominican Republic in 1932, he left home at 18 to study painting in Madrid, Spain.

He soon developed a love of fashion design and began an apprenticeship with Spain's designer Cristobal Balenciaga.

De la Renta made his name in the early 1960s when the then first lady Jackie Kennedy frequently wore his designs. He launched his own label several years later.

Wow...I had no idea about this. R.I.P. to a well-known fashion designer.

I'm looking at reports right now and they're indicating that he'd been battling cancer. So sad. :\'(
