One of the oldest designers, Oscar de la Renta, claims he is still learning about fashion. The 77-year-old couturier says that after so many years in the industry he keeps on feeling fascinated by fashion and won’t stop designing until he is sure he knows everything about it.
People always ask me how much longer I am going to do this, and I say the day I learn everything is when I should stop. I am a curious person, so every day is a learning process. There has never been a time as challenging as now to create clothes.”
Oscar admits that to be called-for in modern times he has to work hard because women have so many choice nowadays.
Back in the 60s, my customers only got their clothes from one place. Today, that loyalty doesn’t exist as women want to project their own individuality through fashion. It’s about understanding the needs and aspirations of professional women that makes it so exciting.”
