Duro Olowu, UK Designer, Gives Style A Memorable Punch Of Color

Even though New York Fashion Week is over, we are still dying for the bold, brilliant beauty of U.K. designer Duro Olowu's Spring 2012 line. It's just so sleek and kickin' -- there's a level of sophistication in the pattern and fabric choices that makes each piece feel like a work of art. And the fact that first lady Michelle Obama can (and will) do push-ups with Desmond Tutu while wearing Olowu's designs gives his looks an added practical genius.
