Oscar de la Renta: His Legendary World of Style

The Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) opened  SCAD FASH, a fashion and film museum, on the Atlanta campus in October. According to Domenico De Sole, chairman of Tom Ford International, “SCAD FASH exemplifies the university’s commitment to fashion for both students and professionals. And it demonstrates how SCAD continues to provide creative talent to the fashion industry.”

Like the award-winning SCAD Museum of Art, SCAD FASH serves as a teaching museum and creative resource for students of all ages and a wellspring of inspiration for visitors. The museum is committed to programming that engages the university’s broad array of academic disciplines and offering a diverse, year-round program of exhibitions, films, installations, performances and events to enliven and inspire SCAD students and the greater community. Every program is designed to engage and appeal to visitors with varied backgrounds and interests, from textiles and jewelry to photography and film.

It’s inaugural exhibit? None other than a much celebrated exhibition of the work of the late Oscar de la Renta. A rather apropos launch, the de la Renta exhibit features more than 60 garments, many designed exclusively for de la Renta’s closest friends and family, and has been available for public view since the beginning of October.

Although the Oscar de la Renta exhibit is nearing its end (its last day is December 31), SCAD FASH is preparing for upcoming exhibitions “A Fashionable Mind: Photographs by Jonathan Becker” and “Daniel Lismore: Be Yourself; Everyone Else is Already Taken,” which will open to the public Friday, Jan. 22.  Both installations run until April 1, 2016, giving you plenty of time to schedule a trip to Atlanta to check out both exhibitions and this much anticipated addition to the fashion landscape.
