Lanre Aluko Introduces Lorenzo Duffle Bag Designs (LDBD)



About the designer: Lanre Aluko is an undergraduate at Loughborough University U.K. studying Business Economics and Finance. He is also a Singer/ Songwriter.  He appeared on the BN’s 25 days of Christmas giveaway as a Vlisco contest winner rocking one of his designs.

Nothing inspires me more than fashion artistry and the new kid on the block and  Lanre Aluko, the Creative Director of Lorenzo Duffle Bag Designs has shown creativity in his new collection themed “Africa Meets the City”. Lanre generated the concept for this collection from the city of London, where he is based and from African beauty and culture.

“I utilize mainly African Prints and all my designs are handmade. This is because I have always dreamed of African Prints being used in high street fashion and getting recognition worldwide in the fashion industry” says Lanre.

Effortlessly chic and retro with a 1970s vibe and sexy modern twist, this collection stands out with the vivacious traditional fabric used to create simple but fabulous outfits ranging from the high-waist harem pants to clean-cut dresses; fashion must-have accessories like bow-ties and Arab Scarves.

    I totally like the idea of the harem pants and I love the sort of backless top that was paired with the new tights. As for the dress, cute, but these days we are seeing a lot of african fabrics, “ankara” being sewn into simple gowns. I think we need to see more unusual and creative things done with ankara from designers to inspired us and not just a simple cut dress, too much of that around now.

    I don’t really like the waistcoat and tie concept. It kinda looks like a waiters uniform and I’m not trying to diss or be nasty. It’s just my opinion. I love every other thing. btw I saw the guy in the jacket at the jazz, funk and soul night in nottingham. he sings 🙂
    free info…
