Frida Giannini Said Designing Couture... Oscar de la Renta's Quartet...

Sources say Frida Giannini is working on a debut couture collection.



OSCAR’S QUARTET: Oscar de la Renta had a meet-and-greet at Bergdorf Goodman recently to unveil four exclusive wedding gowns for the store. Brides-to-be at Bergdorf’s now have four styles they won’t find anywhere else — including a $13,190 embroidered strapless gown with silk faille underlay. Taking care of brides isn’t all that different than suiting up women with his ready-to-wear, the designer said. “Every single girl wants to look her best that day and she wants to look romantic. This is what my work is all about,” he said.

That can-do attitude also carries over to his approach to the ongoing recession. “In general, I am always optimistic,” he said. “You have to make an effort to look good probably now even more so because things have not turned around as quickly as everybody expected.”
