Fashion Designer Spotlight: Duro Olowu

I know winter just arrived, but i find myself already missing spring and summer days when i can spend my days in dresses and walk outside without a jacket. So i've started to prepare my inspiration file with designers whose spring looks i like.

This are some of my favorite pieces by African designer Duro Olowu. His spring 2009 collection is colorful and appeals to the avid color mixer in me. He mixes prints and colors beautifully, and there's something interesting about each ensemble that he's put together. He manages to combine unusual pieces and accesories like tribal pieces, luxe brocades and even glittery eye brooches to create visually appealing creations.

I would wear ANY of these pieces. However, since my level of affluence is not on the level where i can drop that much cash on clothing, i'll just have to keep dreaming. So until i get to that level, or win the lottery, i'm will be hunting for the looks i like (for less) for spring.

I would love to get your input on the creations....

LOVE these designs! I hope our new First Lady wears some of these! I'm adoring the first jacket-and-skirt combo and also the little black dress.
