Nigerian-born, London-based designer Duro Olowu has been dressing stylish women like First Lady Michelle Obama and Solange Knowles in his mixed prints long before it was a hot trend. Now, he’s “democratizing” fashion and creating a lifestyle brand for JCPenney that all women can afford — with everything under $100.

To get the scoop about the launch of his first retail collaboration, coming in spring 2013, go to Essence.


    JCPenney is a failing company. Nobody checking for them.
