Óscar Arístides Renta Fiallo, known professionally as
Oscar de la Renta, was a Dominican-American fashion
designer. Born in Santo Domingo, he was trained by Cristóbal
Balenciaga and Antonio del Castillo. De la Renta became
internationally known in the 1960s as one of the couturiers

to an apprenticeship with Spain's most renowned couturier, Cristóbal
Balenciaga. He considered Cristóbal Balenciaga his mentor. In 1961,
de la Renta left Spain to join Antonio del Castillo as a couture assistant
at Lanvin in Paris.
De la Renta proceeded to work for Arden for two years in New York City
before he went to work for Jane Derby, an American fashion house.
When Derby died in August 1965, de la Renta took over the label.
eponymous fashion house has boutiques around the world including in
