A look at the FW2015/2016 collection designed by Peter Copping who took over as Creative Director of Oscar de la Renta, after the iconic designer passed away last October.

I am immensely proud to have been chosen Creative Director of Oscar de la Renta,” wrote Copping. “Unfortunately things did not go according to our plans and I never had the chance to work with Oscar, which is something I deeply regret. In this, my first collection, I hope to honour Oscar’s legacy and also to start a new chapter for the house,” Peter Copping, formerly the artistic director of Nina Ricci, stated after the show.

Born in Oxford, Peter Copping always dreamed of being a designer. In 2012 he told Iris Apfel, who was speaking with him for Interview magazine, “I can remember when I was young I used to make dresses for my sister’s dolls. I’d find scraps of fabric. I can remember having some amazing green lamé that I just loved, and making a little tunic dress.
