He enjoyed a comeback in 2001, when he introduced the Oleg Cassini Sport line, alluding to his designs and color-schemes of the 60's. He also had a successful bridal business and about 40 licensees across the world.
His collection of Jacqueline Kennedy's dresses was displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2001. Some pieces of her wardrobe were sold at auction houses.
A late convert to animal rights, he blamed himself for the loss of 250,000 leopards -- killed as women flocked to copy a coat he had designed for Jackie Kennedy. He renounced the killing of animals and stuck by his word by introducing micro-fiber fake furs in 1999, a fully synthetic material that retained the feel, warmth, and fashion of real fur. He was also an avid animal-lover and shared his Oyster Bay estate with a menagerie of pets including eighteen dogs, fifteen cats, thirty goats, six sheep, one half-ton sow, two Vietnamese potbellied pigs, one donkey, two parrots, twenty-two full-size horses, and two miniature horses.
In his 1995 book, "A Thousand Days of Magic: Dressing Jacqueline Kennedy for the White House," Mr. Cassini wrote, "All I remember about those days are nerves, and Jackie on the phone: 'Hurry, hurry, Oleg, I've got nothing to wear.'"
He led a fast jet-set life and his reputation as a boulevardier. He wrote his autobiography "In My Own Fashion" in 1987.
In 1980's Cassini began to lose the public attention.
He claimed credit for introducing the Nehru Jacket in 1966-67, based on a traditional Indian jacket and named after the Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. Cassini also designed a Johnny Carson line of men's suits.
In 1963 the world saw another pink pillbox hat by Cassini on Mrs. Kennedy, when she was next to the President when he was assassinated. In less than 3 years Cassini created about three hundred outfits for the First Lady. His creativity was inspired by Russian, Italian, French, Oriental, and Native American cultures. Cassini is credited for such design accomplishments as the sheath, the A-line, the little white collar dress, the knit, and the military look for women.
Was a regular guest on the talk show circuit, including The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962) and The Mike Douglas Show (1961).
For the President Kennedy's Inauguration in 1961, Cassini dressed the First Lady in a fawn beige wool coat with a small sable collar and a matching pillbox hat. Cassini may have seen pictures of the First Lady of Mexico wearing a pillbox hat a year earlier, but Mrs. Kennedy was the first one to be seen on every TV in the world. Soon, it seemed, women all over the world followed the First Lady's image.
In 1960 Oleg Cassini became the Principal State robe designer chosen by Jacqueline Kennedy, who knew him for years. His solid training in art and his long experience in Hollywood served him well. Cassini created the new image for the First Lady, which became the first memorable fashion line to emerge on TV sets across the world. Cassini's experience with Hollywood cameras gave him the important knowledge of how the clothing would look on the screen, being photographed from a distance. That's how Jacqueline Kennedy's wardrobe was created by Cassini with the emphasis on geometric clarity of lines, pronounced color, sumptuous fabrics, and even the big buttons.
After the end of WWII he was discharged and moved back to New York, where he opened the 'Oleg Cassini' Salon on the East 55th Street.

He moved to New York in 1936 and then to Hollywood. There he worked first for Paramount Pictures and even designed a sarong for Dorothy Lamour. At that time Cassini was paid $250 a week designing wardrobes for the stars of B movies.
He won 5 First Prizes at the 1934 International Fashion Competition in Turin, Italy. There Cassini showed a woman's suit in his famous Cossac-style design featuring huge buttons.
In 1933 he opened his own design studio.
His family were landed aristocracy in Russia until 1917, when the communists seized their ancestral estate and the family fled to Florence, Italy. There Cassini helped his mother, who worked as a fashion designer of hats at the salon of Countess Fabricotti. He also traveled with his mother to Paris twice a year, where he studied and sketched the new French fashions.
