Oscar de la Renta Tour at the Museum of Fine Arts
Thursday, November 30, 9:15AM to 2:30PM, $10 per person (includes lunch and the tour)
The Museum of Fine Arts of Houston Exhibition Tour: The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta celebrates the illustrious life and career of the renowned fashion designer. With 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 Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, this ensemble will take you through the life of de la Renta. Beginning with one of the most significant influences on de la Renta’s life: Spain, where he launched his career, the exhibition culminates in a look at gowns once worn by fashion icons, dignitaries, and celebrities, including Beyoncé, Laura Bush, Amal Clooney, Penelope Cruz, Kirsten Dunst, Karlie Kloss, and Lynn Wyatt.
