ART + FASHION POP-UP: DURO OLOWU AT SALON 94 BOWERY

More Material, which opened at Salon 94 Bowery June 26th, collects London by way of Nigeria designer Duro Olowu’s womenswear creations as well as his wide-ranging inspirations. As eclectic and internationally-focused as his lauded print-mixing dresses and separates (favorites of First Lady Michelle Obama), items on display range from antique African costumes to vintage 1930s photographs to leather furniture and artistic tapestries.

Iris Apfel

Gallery director Alissa Friedman and fashion icon Iris Apfel mingled with the designer and his wife, Chief Curator of The Studio Museum in Harlem, Thelma Golden, and other attendees included former Whitney Director David A. Ross, Cindy Sherman and Tracee Ellis Ross.
