Nigerian- New York based fashion designer Duro Olowu kicked off the celebration of his 10th year in the fashion business which will be later this year with a presentation during London Fashion Week 2014 with a Fall 2014 ready-to-wear collection inspired by an art deco designer in the 1920s in Parisknown as Elizabeth Eyre de Lanux.

The collection had a handful of vintage touches, like the prim organza collar on a silk print dress, and a handful of surreal ones, like the fur pockets on a coat. Silhouettes had a hint of Deco about them, and a recurring print—also executed as a jacquard knit—was directly inspired by the look of Eyre de Lanux&#39s inlay woodwork. But these were all niceties; there was hardly a piece in this collection you wouldn&#39t immediately identify as Olowu&#39s, whether a tailored jacket with 3-D inverted seams in back, or the full skirt patch worked from fabrics ranging from vintage Bianchini brocade to an African artisan print harvested from Olowu&#39s mother&#39s house. After a decade of doing his thing, this designer is in no doubt as to what his thing is.
