Fashion Spotlight: Nigerian Fashion Designer Duro Olowu!!

As I read thru the fashion section in the international Paris based Vogue Magazine L'Uomo Vogue, I came across an interview about an amazing Nigerian born fashion designer, Duro Olowu.  He studied law but came back to his first passion which was fashion.  His designs have made its way to the states and has been seen being worn by our first lady Michelle Obama and on New York's Fashion Week's Runway! 
His work definitely captures the essence of African fashion in such a fashionable, wearable and modern way.  Check out some of his pieces below! 




I love the vibrant colors and patterns. Simply gorgeous!

You can read his full interview here with L'Uomo Vogue!

Such an inspiring story of how things work out in your favor when you follow your passion.  It doesn't matter where you come from, the sky is the limit! Combining fashion from different countries definitely makes Mr.Olowu's pieces stand out and one of a kind! I love it!!
