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.”
