About Stamp Series

On February 16, 2017, in New York, NY, the U.S. Postal Service® will issue the Oscar de la Renta First-Class Mail® stamps (Forever® priced at 49 cents) in eleven designs, in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) pane of 11 stamps.

The stamps will go on sale nationwide February 16, 2017.

Most widely known for dressing the country’s first ladies and celebrities, Oscar de la Renta (1932–2014) was one of the world’s leading fashion designers for 50 years. This pane of 11 stamps features an evocative black-and-white portrait of the couturier and 10 details from several of his most exquisite gowns. De la Renta‘s innovative designs and close attention to detail elevated American style and brought international attention to New York as a world leader in fashion. Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamps.

Oscar de la Renta moved to Spain as a young man from his native country, the Dominican Republic, to pursue a life in the arts. After working for some of the biggest names in European fashion, he moved to New York in 1963 and captured the beauty and ease American women craved in their gowns and suits. He mingled just as confidently with the socialites of New York as he had with their counterparts in Paris and Madrid and sought to create both the day and evening wear that such powerful and influential women desired.
