The ‘Oscar de la Renta: The Retrospective’ exhibition at de Young Museum, San Francisco was truly special. Curated by André Leon Talley, galleries showing Oscar de la Renta’s extravagant, feminine, and elegant dresses and ensembles provided an absolutely fashionable experience. More importantly, beneath them all, the passion and kindness of the man himself shone brightly through the garments. Photos by Christian Hadidjaja.

I certainly didn’t expect to catch a serious case of winter blues and abandoned my blog for four months. It’s a humbling period; a struggle to up my energy and motivation. I was psychologically and spiritually restless. Now that I’m once again ready to work with my more creative side, I’d like to “air my grievances” and share why I went dark for the past couple of months. This is a hard post to write, so excuse my awkwardness that no doubt seeps through my writing.
