Nigerian-born fashion designer, Duro Olowu, was enlisted by the First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama to decorate the White House in preparation for the 2015 Christmas celebrations.

He and other fashion designers like Carolina Herrera, Humberto Leon, Carol Lim and Kenzo were brought in to decorate White House’s China Room, Vermeil Room and library for the holiday season.

Olowu decorated the Vermeil room using two eight-foot Christmas trees draped with vintage fabrics, ribbons and encrusted tinsel to spruce up the space, which is sometimes used as a sitting room.

Born to a Nigerian father and Jamaican mother, Duro was raised in Lagos, spending his childhood travelling between Nigeria and different cities in Europe. His wife, Thelma Golden, is the Director and Chief Curator of the Studio Museum in Harlem, New York.
