Oscar de la Renta’s name is synonymous with couture. His designs are a staple of any and every red carpet and during wedding season, brides all over the world are desperate to snatch up one of his elegant dresses. So, when the fashion heavy-weight, Peter Copping was named his new creative director, the fashion world took notice. Plans for de la Renta to step down as creative director began when his health was in decline. John Galliano was briefly considered before the relationship between the two designers soured.
Rumors started flying about Copping becoming part of the de la Renta team in October when he left his position as artistic director at Nina Ricci. Copping has a track record of success both at Nina Ricci and at Louis Vuitton where he worked with Marc Jacobs.
We’re excited about Copping ushering in a new era of design for Oscar de la Renta. Are you? Tell us @NEUFashion
