Read one of Oscar de la Renta’s final interviews

In the interview, one of his last ones, Oscar de la Renta talked about how he had to secretly become a fashion designer in Paris (‘For my parents, Paris, where I wanted to go, was considered Sodome et Gomorrhe’); why John Galliano deserved a second chance after his anti-semitic remarks; and how he never wanted to stop working (‘I hate the word “retiring”‘).
