ABC News has confirmed though a family member that legendary designer Oscar de la Renta has passed away. He was 82 years old.

De la Renta was diagnosed with cancer in 2006. He made a name for himself in the early 1960s when Jacqueline Kennedy wore his designs. He went on to launch his own label in 1965 and dressed many famous ladies like Sarah Jessica Parker, Penelope Cruz and Hilary Clinton. He most recently designed Amal Clooney’s stunning lace wedding gown. De la Renta also won a ton of fashion awards for his unmatched work, including two COTY Awards, two Council of Fashion Designers Designer of the Year Awards and a CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award. His work with the American fashion industry is unparalleled.

Our thoughts are with his wife, son, family, friends and colleagues. He will be greatly missed by the fashion world.
