An exhibit paying homage to the works of late Dominican American fashion designer Oscar de la Renta has opened at SCAD Museum of Art, a part of the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia.

Scheduled to run through May 5, 2015, the display titled ‘Oscar de la Renta: His Legendary World of Style’ aims to highlight the deep bond and relationship shared by the designer with his clients, closest friends and family.

Curated by SCAD Board of Trustees member, André Leon Talley, the exhibition showcases more than 70 dresses including a ruffled one-shouldered silk evening gown, from the iconic designer’s resort 2013 ready-to-wear collection. The red dress was worn by signer Beyoncé for Vogue March 2013 edition's cover shoot.

Speaking on the eclectic exhibits, the curator says, “Oscar de la Renta designed clothes for women who wanted to look and feel beautiful, at their most elegant best. Each ensemble selected in this exhibition comes from the closets of some of Oscar’s most iconic clients: Mrs. Mercedes T. Bass, Diana Taylor, as well as Oscar's wife, Annette de la Renta, and his stepdaughter, Eliza Bolen.”

“With Oscar de la Renta, you always felt life was lived in the sun. He loved his family and filled life with beauty from his gardens, his collections, paintings and music. He loved to sing,” adds Talley.

The event, which is the first retrospective to celebrate the master of elegance and his work since his passing in October, 2014, also features exquisite ensembles worn by noted people like Oprah Winfrey, Sarah Jessica Parker and Nicole Kidman as well as former First Ladies, Laura Bush and Hillary Rodham Clinton.
