 Duro Olowu is a Nigerian-born fashion designer and he has been enlisted by the First Lady of The United States of America, Michelle Obama, to decorate the white house in preparation for the 2015 Christmas celebrations.
According to Reporters, Olowu along with other fashion designers such as Caroline Herrera, Humberto Leon, Carol Lim and Kenzo, was brought into the White House’s China Room, Vermeil Room, and library for the holiday season.
The report reveals that Olowu decorated the Vermeil room using two 8-foot Christmas trees draped with vintage fabrics, ribbons and encrusted tinsel.

Olowu was born to a Nigerian father and Jamaican mother. He was raised in Lagos and spent his childhood travelling between Nigeria and various European cities.
His designs have earned him customers such as Michelle Obama, Uma Thurman, Keira Knightley, and Linda Evangelista.
