Chanel isn’t the only label making its mark in Dallas. Oscar de la Renta: Five Decades of Style has opened at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in the stylish city and will run through October 5. WWD spoke to the designer, who dressed First Lady Laura Bush throughout her husband’s eight-year term. “Mrs. Bush came up with the idea of doing a show at the Bush Library, and of course, we embraced the idea,” De la Renta said. The show features 64 mannequins and is significantly larger than last year’s Oscar de la Renta: American Icon exhibit at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library & Museum in Little Rock, Arkansas. It turns out Little Rock has a fashion following, too—nearly 250,000 visitors saw that show. And after The Costume Institute’s Charles James: Beyond Fashion reached a global audience through social media, we’re expecting these fashion exhibits to receive increasingly broad audiences. To fashion history and beyond!
