I’ve been a fan of Duro Olowu’s dresses for many years now. His use of printed fabrics in contemporary silhouettes makes it easy for anyone to incorporate prints into their wardrobe. Here are a few highlights from his showing for Spring 2013 during New York Fashion Week yesterday . . .
I know the last 3 posts are bordering on print overload, but please bear with me! ☺ These posts are coming from a girl who has had an undying love of prints for years. When I first started my clothing line I was making dresses and skirts from hand dyed African brocade and Vlisco dutch wax prints. I had many people & some retailers tell me that the prints were “too bold” . . . “too colorful” . . . “not what customers were looking for” . . . yet when I wore my dresses in public, both then, and even now, women would stop me in the street and ask where I got my dress from. I guess I am just relishing the fact that the day of the print is here, and I am loving every moment of it!
