What do Alexander Wang & Oscar de la Renta Have in Common?
They both worked at Balenciaga! Wang recently stepped in as the new Creative Director starting in late 2012 while de la Renta worked at the couturier's maison in Madrid & got his start there. "I think there is a great opportunity at Balenciaga," he tells Wang, giving the younger designer some friendly advice. "The two designers who really strongly marked the twentieth century in fashion were Balenciaga and Chanel. I don't particularly care for Dior, Schiap. I think that Balenciaga and Chanel had a very clear vision of what they were about, and what is most important is that the formula still today is a valid formula."
