It is with sadness that I write this article honoring the iconic and visionary designer, Oscar de la Renta. He was a man who symbolized romance, timelessness, and style though out his longstanding career in everything he designed. Please take a minute to link to; at Latin Business Today and share in my thoughts on this legendary man.
