Fashion designer Oscar de la Renta was remembered by many and honored at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. A long list of stars wore his designs and a documentary movie about his life was screened for a select audience.
The legendary Oscar de la Renta passed away last year after a battle with cancer. He was 82 years old. But at the world-renowned Cannes Film Festival audiences were able to see the new film “Ovation for Oscar”. The film featured Vogue author Anna Wintour and de la Renta’s widow, Annette de la Renta.
The film is just 20 minutes long and features behind-the-scenes looks at his first exhibit since he passed away. The exhibit is currently at the SCAD College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. This was a place held dear to his heart where he was deeply involved. He had a great connection with young students and aspiring designers. It’s well known he was an honorable and well respected mentor to many youngsters at the college.
