Duro Olowu collection at London fashion week

By Andrea Thatcher on September 26th, 2007

On Tuesday September 18th, British designer Duro Olowu showed his second-ever runway collection during London fashion week. The Nigerian-born designer created a collection of bell-sleeve trapeze dresses, gingham blouses, busy prints, ruffled necklines, and jade, jade, jade. The collection was pulled together nicely and very consistent, but the clashing prints on some items aren’t for everybody and it’s more likely the nicely tailored jackets and pants will sell to a wider audience.

London-based designer Alice Temperley first introduced her feminine frocks to the English runway in 2003. By the time she debuted in New York in the spring of 2006 she already had a following in America. For her Target Go International collection coming to stores September 16th, Temperley created interpretations of her fall 2007 ready-to-wear collection, using the same gray, black, white, and blue palette, high Victorian necklines, and floppy bow accents, while making the clothing more everyday wearable and, of course, a lot more affordable.
