Miranda Brooks shared her experience working directly with Oscar De La Renta for her wedding in 2010 on Vogue's website. Here's what she had to say:
"Every memory I have of Oscar De La Renta involves pleasure and beauty, from walks through gardens, to late-night singing. When he agreed to make my wedding dress, I rather dreaded the fittings. I usually seemed to have just crawled out of a hedge--literally--whilst Oscar was always immaculate, firm, and assured. I was gently pruned and groomed and appeared, on the day, very much myself in an embroidered cotton dress, but even more so--perhaps who I wish I was. The dress had an under-dress for dancing over flames late into the night. That love of life is the thing I so admired in Oscar--family, friends, homes, gardens, music, and singing. I will miss the sound of his voice."
