This week the fashion industry paid its respects to the late, and much-loved, fashion designer Oscar De La Renta. The ceremony took place on Monday at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola on Park Avenue and 84th Street in New York, very close to the designer’s Manhattan home.

The sidewalks bordering the church thronged with the industry’s elite: from the media who made Oscar’s designs so famous (a tearful Anna Wintour was joined by her team Hamish Bowles, Grace Coddington and stylist Tonne Goodman) to De La Renta’s designer peers (Valentino, Donna Karan, Diane Von Furstenburg, Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren). Hollywood and red carpet fans came in full-force too, from Hugh Jackman to Matthew Broderick, presumably representing his wife Sarah-Jessica Parker who was deeply fond of the designer (the SATC star spoke warmly of the designer upon his deat: “It was an enormous privilege to be dressed by Mr. de la Renta for so many occasions over the last 15 years. And especially meaningful to collaborate with him for this year’s Met Gala. I will always be grateful that he allowed me to honor him by embroidering his name in Scarlett on the hem of his glorious dress. He was an inspiration and a man like no other.”)

The death of this hugely popular designer, philanthropist and well-respected business man Oscar De La Renta was mourned by many yesterday, after he lost his battle to cancer at the age of 82, just a couple of weeks ago.
