The hit drama Outlander, currently in its second season on Starz, crosses several different genres. Based on the bestselling book series by Diana Gabaldon, the show follows the story of Claire, a WWII British nurse who unexpectedly finds herself transported back in time to 18th century Scotland, and must quickly learn to navigate her new surroundings as well as her new marriage to a Highlander named Jamie. Outlander's production team creates an incredibly rich viewing experience for its audience each week. One of the most exciting of these elements is, of course, Terry Dresbach's phenomenal costume design, which adds a tremendous amount of depth to the story. Every single costume, whether it's on a lead character or a background player, fits seamlessly into the narrative.

In honor of Oscar de la Renta receiving the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Founder's Award in Honor of Eleanor Lambert this coming weekend, we take a look back at some of his early designs.
De la Renta's graphic use of color, pattern, and embellishment made his designs wildly popular in the 1960s, and remain many of the most iconic elements of the period.
