A different fashion event found its place at the New York Oscar de la Renta boutique. Along with champagne for the moms, lemonade and Apple & Eve juice boxes were served because that’s the designer's new target.Oscar de la Renta launched his first ever line for toddlers that has every fashionable mamma counting the days until their daughter's school pictures. The designer puts his qualitative stamp on childrenswear the same way he does on his eveningwear. Cap sleeves, pleats and ruffles in rich fabrics is what you can expect. The prices are on the de la Renta level too: they range from $220 to $330. This might seem extreme, but knowing that $100 per dress is being donated to the Children’s Defense Fund softens it down – if those school pictures don’t already.
