Designer. Icon. Legend. Just a few labels for Oscar de la Renta, the man behind the label. Mr. de la Renta, a staple in the fashion industry, has always taken a sophisticated, graceful and extraordinarily daring approach to designing. OdlR believes, “What’s most important to these women is individuality. I have to create things she’ll want to wear, no matter who she is.” And the man does just that. Recently, Oscar’s SS12 show made waves in the digital world as well as on the runway. Social Society’s leading lady aka Oscar PR Girl introduced #OdlrLive on Tumblr, proving that innovation oozes from his runway world, into the digital world, for the world. Take a note from Oscar and embrace your own individuality, creativity and style. What better way to do that, than to get inspired by a recent piece from his SS12 collection. P.S.- it’s tassel time!
To create, round up a black tank top, tassels, needle and thread, and a pair of scissors. Snip of the string loop at the top of your tassels and place onto the shirt to lay out your pattern. P.S.- use a piece of chalk to mark if you need a guide. Pierce the needle and thread through the top of the tassel head, and stitch onto the top layer of your shirt. Stitch 3 or 4 times to secure, double knot and trim on the inside. Continue to space out and sew onto shirt.
You can’t and shouldn’t escape the magical world of Oscar PR Girl. Follow her, Friend her, tweet her, adore her, P.S.- I do!
