Duro Olowu, the eponymous Nigerian label based in London, recently showcased it’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection on the second day of London Fashion Week SS 15. Mixing diverse prints with vibrant colors, the collection is an exhibition of creative exuberance with it’s elaborate shapes and cuts.
The inspiration for his collection this season came from a trip to the Senegalese island of Saint-Louis, where the collection’s appliquéd starched brocade was made and which supplied Olowu with his Spring ’15 palette. He also cited the cover art for the album The Pointer Sisters, Ozu’s film Drunken Angel and Japanese film noir in general and 1940s pinups as inspirations. The retro influence is apparent in the signature multi print tea dresses and the styling of his lookbook where his modern prints are in contrast to the chintz settee. (see more on stylevitae)

It’s another case of sheer ignorance. He thought it was funny and probably would have laughed at his sister or one of his friends because he doesn’t realize we can be KILLED and or maimed in those encounters. It’s not about the grass not being greener. It’s choosing someone who get’s it.
White men will never be there for WoC. You can date him for x amount of years, he can say I love you x amount of times but when it comes down to a matter of your existence as a person of color - They. don’t. give. a. shit.
That goes for anyone dating a white person. Don’t fool yourself into believing they’re different.
