Naija/British fashion designer Duro Olowu unveiled his Spring 2007 ready-to-wear collection this past September during London Fashion Week.

A favorite of mine's from Duru's collection is the agua green halter gown. I also like the sandals Duro designed for the models to wear. As evident in his Spring 2008 collection and Fall 2007 pieces*, Duro bridges both of his cultures-Nigerian and British into his couture pieces.

Quick scoop on Duro Olowu:
His father is Nigerian (Yoruba descent) and his mother is Jamaican.
His invitation only couture line is sold here.
Olowu gave up his legal practices to pursue his fashion designing career.
Duro currently resides in the U.K.

Be sure to check out Duro Olowu's Fall 2007-2008 collection over at his official site.

Any thoughts on Duro Olowu's Spring 2008 collection?
