“Duro Olowu has the skill to take the bold pattern and color from his African heritage – but to use the shades and patterns to mix prints in a modern way. The effect of an old English rose floral, shown against a leopard print, was powerful and so was the idea of taking the same print in different colors and putting them together in one garment.
Above all, Olowu’s clothes never look ethnic, the prints confined to streamlined, modern clothes. The result was a collection that seemed to bring out something in the designer’s soul – but also to relate that to the modern closet.” —fashionmodedirectory
