 By Stephanie Iwuaba.

So remember an article I wrote three months ago about the top 10 Nigerian Fashion Designers. One of these credited fashion designers just moved his game up a notch! He went into big time fashion retail and decided to take the American fashion scene by storm!

We know that his retail pieces are usually grace only the fronts of high end stores like Barneys New york and many others in the UK. And his clients range from Michelle Obama to all other high profile celebs. Thankfully, he will come a bit closer!  We are so excited!!!

He just recently partnered with JC Penney, one of the leading fashion retail chain stores in American for their Spring 2013 collection. His line will be sold both online and in the entire different JCPenny stores across America from March to May of 2013.

The line includes women clothing, bold accessories and home décor items with the price range of $10-$100.

The ad for his line went live online on JC Penney’s Facebook page, Twitter and other social network about six months ago and is already getting some positive reactions!

His diverse styles are known for its’ African prints that gives it originality and its flawless seventies tailoring! We love to celebrate Nigerian success and we say: “you go! Duro Olowu.” Keep bringing the motherland to people far and wide!
