The Nigerian born British designer Duro Olowu spent his early years in an environment that embraced international culture, art, style, and music and he was inspired by the eclectic mix of fabrics, textures and draping techniques of the clothing worn by the women that surrounded him. In 2004, Olowu launched his first eponymous womenswear label and since then he continues to show his much-lauded collections feature ever evolving, original and dynamic fabric juxtapositions in prints of his own design; transforming his sharply tailored or fluid silhouettes into the stylish, timeless signature pieces he is known for.
' For me people and places are linked by colour. The name comes from that
incredible and inspiring combination of exciting colours all around one,
when on an unforgettable trip for work or for pleasure.‘
