On Sunday, October 8, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, opens The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta, an exhibition celebrating the illustrious life and career of the renowned fashion designer. Ensembles presented across four thematic sections highlight the most significant influences— including Spain, Russia, China, Japan, and the garden—on his designs and are displayed alongside paintings and decorative arts from the MFAH collections. The creations offer a window into de la Renta’s world through a range of looks, from elegant daywear to resplendent gowns, including pieces worn by Penelope Cruz, Karlie Kloss, Kirsten Dunst, and Amal Clooney, whose custom bridal gown of beaded-tulle, silk, and embroidered lace will be on view.
Admission is $25 for adults (19+); $20 for senior adults (65+ with ID), military (with ID), college students (with ID) and youth (13–18); and free for children (12 and younger) and MFAH Members. Additional information can be found at www.mfah.org/oscardelarenta.
