A Unique Fall/Winter 14 Collection From Nigeria's Duro Olowu

This is about Nigerian designer Duro Olowu and his presentation during London Fashion Week for Fall/Winter 14 Collection.

Renowned designer Duro Olowu doesn't follow fashion industry patterns or offer a typical mainstream product. Typically, Fall/Winter collections feature darker colors and heavy materials, but Duro Olowu brought a profusion of colors and an explosive mix of light pieces to his recent London Fashion Week F/W 14 show. You can spot all his influences from Nigeria to UK and recognize his signature straight away. Duro Olowu knows how to perfectly blend different prints to create unique garments. The way he structures his pieces is essential, as he mixes the oversized and well-fitted look really well. He's definitely one of the London Fashion Week's highlight as his work depicts a clear direction and doesn't look like anything else. The collection is colorful and shows that F/W doesn't necessarily mean cold and monotone. We love the work and have developed a total crush on his capes.
