Sadly, this week the world said goodbye to the extraordinary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta.  Following are some inspirational words of wisdom from this amazing icon:

"Fashion is about dressing according to what's fashionable.  Style is more about being yourself"

"There is always an emotional element to anything you make."

"I'm a very restless person.  I'm always doing something.  The creative process never stops."

"I wanted this, I wanted to do this, but my work is me, and it has to be right."

"The great thing about fashion is it always looks forward."
