Following death of brands founder, Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia are inspiring a move away from classic designs
Oscar de la Renta, long the source of gowns for Manhattans benefit-circuit socialite, is in a new era. Following the death of its founder in 2014, Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia who worked with de la Renta for 12 years are now at the helm. On Tuesday at New York fashion week, they showed off their spring/summer 2019 collection. While the weather was foggy, a flower-covered rooftop and acapella soundtrack formed the perfect backdrop to clothes that demanded a better forecast. Luckily for Kim and Garcia, the rain remained at a light drizzle. The sun even threatened to shine as models including Gigi and Bella Hadid completed the finale.
