Watch now: The story behind Peter Copping’s first collection for Oscar de la Renta
Take a look behind the scenes at the house of Oscar de la Renta in the video below and see how Peter Copping thrived under the challenging task of creating a collection in just eight short weeks after being appointed the new creative director for the label.
The label's legendary founder Oscar de la Renta, handpicked Copping to be his successor, but the pair anticipated that they would have more time to work alongside each other and handover the reigns. When Oscar sadly passed away at the age of 82, Copping was thrust into the fore. Following the unveiling of his debut collection at New York Fashion Week last month, he has more than proved himself to have a deep understanding of the Oscar de la Renta woman.
In this revealing video Copping opens up about his experience transitioning into his new role, and shares his feelings of deep respect for his predecessor, the late great Oscar de la Renta.
