As a shamelessly huge fan of Duro Olowu and an avid subscriber to the ultra fabulous fasion retail website- www.net-a-porter.com , you can only begin to imagine my joy when he launched his new collection on net-a-porter. Net-a-porter is known for their online luxury clothing pieces and one of a kind pieces from the most prolific and influential fashion designers in the world. Their usual designers include; Versace, Alexander Wang, Dolce and Gabbana, Christian Louboutin, Charlotte Olympia (to name a few). Just the mere thought of a Nigerian designer being lined up with fashion’s heavyweights is a fantastic!
Duro Olowu’s collection flirts with a wide range of printed silk fabrics. The collection is very elegant with Duro favouring longer hemlines and curve hugging structure. It is an extremely feminine collection dedicated to the epitome of a woman’s body, yet there is an element of quirkiness seen in the printed fabric. All in all, this collection did not disappoint and fall nothing short of fantastic.
