The Duro Olowu party was held at the Stone Rose Lounge in the Time Warner building in Manhattan. Some celebrities such as chef Marcus Samuelsson, international supermodel Bethann Hardison, and model Miss J. were spotted amongst the throng of people. A first seasonal designer for J.C. Penney, Olowu stated, “This collection is for anyone from 18 to 80… Everything has a flattering element, whether you mix prints or pull out one piece and keep it simple.” On top of all this, Olowu is one of the darlings of the First Lady Michelle Obama. She’s been spotted many times wearing Olowu’s creations with beauty and grace. And here’s the good news — the price range is really affordable, the collection including purses, shoes, household good, luggage, dresses, skirts from 10$ to 100$.

    I left JCP since the new CEO turned everything around but for Duro my country man, I am willing to give JCP another chance. Colorful and bold attires will be great.
