Duro Olowu for J.C.P.

Duro Olowu has entered the world of collaboration. Fashion for less remains in style. This African fashion icon is reaching mainstream market with a womenwear, accessories and home line @ JCPenney for spring 2013. Many of us can only look and dream about his superb patchwork silk dress (among other designs) which sells on net-a-porter website for…$5,988.00… see here. Well now, for a $100 or less, we will be able to own a piece of his talent. Duro Olowu was born in Nigerian from a Nigerian father and a Jamaican mother. He moved to London to become a lawyer but this carrier was short lived as his passion grew stronger and bigger for fashion. In 2004 he started his second label “Duro Olowu” (the first one was Olowu Golding). In 2005, he was featured in US Vogue, which propelled his name to the high-end designer’s scale.
