Narciso Rodriguez on being mentored by Oscar de la Renta: “He recognized that I really loved women and celebrated women, and [said] to never lose sight of that. That’s the part of my work that I see most that comes from my heritage, from my upbringing—being raised around all these curvaceous women who really loved fashion and the joy of dressing. [That] made a huge impact on me.”
