Following my African fashion google mania; here is my obvious admiration and love for Duru Olowu, lawyer turned fashion designer, grown up between England and Nigeria, all-around awesome man. He’s doing some pretty amazing things inspired by the bold fashions of the women around him.
“I wanted it to have practical volume, a regal normality. I called it ‘Bamako Pompadour.'” Bamako is the capital of Mali, which “had an empire of huge wealth and intellect—and beautiful women.”
Also love his former collections.
