Revisiting Michelle Obama and Duro Olowu…

August 12, 2014 § Leave a comment

This is a long overdue entry, thanks to a long hiatus I took from blogging, the last few years. My first ever blog entry was about a Mrs. O siting in Duro Olowu. That was before she was the first lady and getting pictures of her online required a little research. Since, she has been spotted dorning Duro Olowu on different occasions and while I’m sure I missed more, I just wanted to highlight some of the looks and pieces.

Duro Olowu is one of those African designers that has made it in mainstream fashion circles. In my view what makes him stand out really represents a sensibility that is not uncommon among African designers in general, but also among many African women (and of African descent) – a certain way with color and print mixing, as well as a certain slightly (seemingly) eclectic styling. Thanks to Mrs. O for highlighting this designer and his work.
