“El Servicio Postal de los Estados Unidos  está orgulloso de honrar a Oscar de la Renta por su ingenio y como líder pionero en la industria de la moda”, destaca Janice Walker, vice presidenta de comunicación corporativa del USPS. “Estas hermosas estampillas ilustran el estilo glamoroso y las grandes destrezas del diseñador, que ayudó a crear un puente entre la moda americana y francesa en pro de la mujer”.

NEW YORK — The U.S. Postal Service issued Forever stamps honoring Oscar de la Renta, one of the world’s leading fashion designers, during a ceremony at Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Terminal. The stamps are being sold as a pane of 11 stamps. For 50 years, de la Renta created glamorous, sophisticated clothes that showcased the distinctively feminine attributes of the women who wore them. His innovative designs and close attention to detail elevated American style and brought international attention to New York as world leader in fashion. “The Postal Service is proud to honor Oscar de la Renta for his genius and pioneering leadership in the fashion industry,” said Janice Walker, vice president, Corporate Communications, U.S. Postal Service, who dedicated the stamp. “These beautiful stamps illustrate his highly polished style and tremendous skill, which helped bridge the gap between American and French designers of trend-setting fashions for women.” Walker was joined at the stamp dedication ceremony by Secretary Hillary Clinton; Michael R. Bloomberg, founder, Bloomberg LP and Bloomberg Philanthropies and 108th Mayor of the City of New York; Alexander Bolen, chief executive officer, Oscar de la Renta LLC; Anna Wintour, artistic director of Condé Nast and editor in chief of Vogue; and Anderson Cooper, journalist and author. “Our family and our company are profoundly honored that the U.S. Postal Service has chosen to memorialize Oscar de la Renta’s life and work with this series of beautiful stamps,” said Bolen. “Oscar was proud to be an American and this would have made him tremendously happy. To commemorate his personal version of the American dream with these stamps is a great honor for which we thank the U.S. Postal Service,” Bolen said. The Oscar de la Renta stamp pane includes 11 images — an evocative black-and-white portrait of de la Renta and 10 stamps that show details from some of his most exquisite gowns. The portrait photo of de la Renta is by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin.  The photo of the light pink dress is by Norman Jean Roy. Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamps. Background Oscar de la Renta moved to Spain as a young man from his native country, the Dominican Republic, to pursue a life in the arts. After working for some of the biggest names in European fashion, he moved to New York in 1963 and captured the beauty and ease American women craved in their gowns and suits. He mingled just as confidently with the socialites of New York as he had with their counterparts in Paris and Madrid and sought to create both the day and evening wear that such powerful and influential women desired.

Durante el emotivo evento, Anderson Cooper fue el maestro de ceremonias, mientras que Michael R. Bloomberg, ex alcalde de Nueva York; Hillary Clinton, ex secretaria de Estado de los Estados Unidos, Alexander Bolen, CEO de Oscar de la Renta y Anna Wintour, editoria de Vogue, y gran amigo de Oscar de la Renta.
