(The Root) — Duro Olowu grabbed attention in Europe a few years ago as the London-based designer of the “it” dress featured in American Vogue. In 2005 he was named Best New Designer of the Year by the British Fashion Council — and he had never had a runway show. Since then, both his collection and his business have grown. This year, during New York Fashion Week, he showed the line in the U.S. for the first time. Since 2008, when he married Thelma Golden, the fashionable and sociable director and chief curator of the Studio Museum in Harlem, he has divided his time between New York and London.
