Around 64 dresses, designed by the Dominican American eveningwear specialist Oscar de la Renta in his extremely fruitful design career of almost five decades, have been put up on display at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas, Texas.
Slated to run through October 5, 2014, the retrospective tribute titled ‘Oscar de la Renta: Five Decades of Style’ aims to give an up and close view of the growth and evolution of the design veteran’s eponymous clothing brand. 
Curated by Molly Sorkin and Jennifer Park, the exhibit includes dresses worn by the former US first ladies like Laura Bush, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Nancy Reagan, as well as daughters of the American President George W. Bush, Jenna and Barbara.
The vast display includes designs, comprised mainly of beaded, embroidered, layered and multicultural lavish evening wear and some daywear pieces, belonging as early as to the 1967 to the recent runway and red-carpet creations.
Some of the most standout pieces from the exhibit include a knee-length white dress and coat day ensemble and a bugle-beaded gray column dress donned by Lady Bush for President Bush’s presidential inaugural festivities in 2005.
Also some nine styles worn by Mercedes T. Bass, wife of the American investor and businessman Sid Richardson Bass, have become a part of the exhibition, which additionally showcases famous fashion magazine editorials, celebrating the designer’s works, from the 1960s and 1970s.
