    The “Urban Gaucho” collection was inspired by Harlem’s Renaissance era and included silk print dresses, swing skirts, tweed jackets, cropped pants and wide-leg trousers.

    “I’m always very inspired by women. I want to make clothes that woman can wear. And I hope that’s what I’ve done,” Olowu said. “I design for an independent spirit who want clothes that make her feel alluring.”

    The collection debuted at Milk Studios on February 13, 2011.
