Bright colours, elegant designs and a name that needs no introduction in the fashion world, Duro Olowu is a legendary designer who always gets it right in all his collections. Officially one of the few designers Michelle Obama patronizes on a regular, Duro Olowu’s designs are always fresh, and fabulous. The designer will be celebrating a decade in fashion later this year but before we bring out the champagne bottles, he gives us an all access pass into his FALL 2014 READY-TO-WEAR collection. Inspired by furniture designer Elizabeth Eyre de Lanux and the Dada set – Man Ray, and Elsa Schiaparelli, Duro’s RTW collection features some bright prints to some sweeping mermaid skirts and a handful of vintage touches, like the prim organza collar on a silk print dress to my personal favourite the 3-dimensional inverted jackets. Fabrics used in this collection include vintage Bianchini brocade to an African artisan print harvested from Olowu’s mother’s house. Enjoy the pieces and let us know which look you can’t wait to grab your hands on.
