Nigeria’s Duro Olowu Makes US Debut With Fall 2011 Line At NY Fashion Week


Nigerian-born designer Duro Olowu debuted his Fall 2011 collection as part of New York’s Fashion Week. It was his first-ever show in the United States and featured contrasting colors and textures, as well as a mix of prints.

The “Urban Gaucho” collection was inspired by Harlem’s Renaissance era and included silk print dresses, swing skirts, tweed jackets, cropped pants and wide-leg trousers.

“I’m always very inspired by women. I want to make clothes that woman can wear. And I hope that’s what I’ve done,” Olowu said. “I design for an independent spirit who want clothes that make her feel alluring.”

The collection debuted at Milk Studios on February 13, 2011.
