ABC News have reported that celebrated fashion designer Oscar de la Renta has died at the age of 82. The designer was diagnosed with cancer in 2006.

De La Renta first became famous for dressing first lady Jacqueline Kennedy in the 1960s – his gowns subsequently became favourites of celebrities and first ladies.

Most recently De La Renta designed Amal Clooney's wedding dress. Just last week, Oscar de La Renta announced that former Nina Ricci design head Peter Copping would be taking over as creative director.
