From runway to red carpet, the world of fashion has lost one of its greatest: Oscar de la Renta.
After battling with cancer for almost eight years, this Monday, he passed away at the age of 82. Renowned for his elegant and detailed designs, here are some of memorable fashion words to live by from the tastemaker.

"The great thing about fashion is that it always moves forward."

"My job as a designer is to make a woman feel her very best."

"I want to make clothes that people will wear, not styles that will make a big splash on the runway."

"There is always an emotional element in anything you make."

"Fashion is about dressing according to what's fashionable. Style is more about being yourself."

"Walk like you have three men walking behind you."

"We live in an era of globalization and the era of the woman. Never in the history of the world have women been more in control of their destiny."

"Be the designer of your own destiny."

"I'm a very restless person. I'm always doing something. The creative process never stops."

"Being well-dressed hasn't much to do with having good clothes. It's a question of good balance and good common sense."
