New York, NY (PRWEB) November 12, 2013
Haute Living sat down with legendary fashion designer, Oscar de la Renta, to discuss his five-decade career, his recent New York Fashion Week show and his source of inspiration: extraordinary women. “I love women. Women have always been my source of inspiration. The 21st century woman is unbelievable,” de la Renta enthuses. “We have to celebrate all that women have achieved in such a short period of time. The women that wear Oscar de la Renta are strong and powerful. My most important customer is a wonderful woman walking down the street, a woman who is proud to be a woman today, a woman who has an extraordinary life. I always say that what’s important is that what a woman is wearing is a projection of her own sense of individuality. It makes our work much but challenging, but also much more exciting.”
Also in this issue, we also sat down with fashion designer turned philanthropist, Lauren Bush Lauren, to learn more about her mission to end world hunger. “Our mission is to create good products to help feed the world. we’ve been lucky to kind of come to market at this time when consumers are wanting more conscious goods that give back and are better for the environment,” she explains. Though Lauren has big plans for FEED, she hopes that retirement is part of her five-year plan. “My ultimate goal is for world hunger, hunger in the U.S. even, to be nonexistent," she reveals. "Therefore, there’d be no need for FEED and we could close up shop.”
For some real celebrity appeal, we got down and dirty with Hollywood legend Isabella Rossellini, whose latest passionate project involves dressing up like insects. “My films were meant to be comical,” explains Rossellini.
