This New York Fashion Week, the Oscar de la Renta show transported guests to the Dominican Republic by way of brightly-colored kaftans, sheer skirts, raffia fringe, and of course, their signature gorgeous gowns.
“We really wanted to tap into the house’s Latin American roots,” designer Fernando Garcia told Vogue, who like Mr. de la Renta, is Dominican himself.
Potted green trees and other plants decorated the runway space at the Cunard building, along with blue, yellow and coral pillars. A model kicked off the show wearing an almost-neon pink blazer over a sheer pink and creamsicle-orange one-shouldered mini dress decorated with an oversized-sheer bow that flowed down the back.
The show continued to move from vacation-inspired looks—including an amazing blue gown with a plunging neckline and bow at the waist—into more evening wear styles.
Candice Swanepoel walked down the runway in a tan, barely-there dress that featured a fishnet bustier decorated in a vine of flowers and a sheer skirt. Another standout included a simple, yet decadent sheer tea-length gown embellished with intricate silver beading.
Irina Shayk closed the show in a comparatively more modest, yet beautiful black high-low ruffled taffeta gown that wrapped at the neck and was finished with a bow at the waist.
