“Folake Folarin-Coker’s return to Nigeria in 1998 after years of study in Europe heralded the coming of a new definition of style and elegance in the country. Within a short span of time her label, Tiffany Amber, became one of the most popular fashion brands in Nigeria, winning several awards and participating in over 40 fashion shows locally and internationally.
After completing a master’s degree in law, Folarin-Coker turned her passion and flair for fashion into a label that is identified with quality and timeless elegance. Undoubtedly, her cosmopolitan background and exposure to people from diverse cultures has greatly influenced her sense of style and ability to design for women of different tastes, shapes and styles, a versatility that has resulted in success as far as the ramps of New York Fashion Week.
Tiffany Amber is not limited to clothing but extends to jewellery, leather goods and accessories. With a philosophy of simplicity-comfort-elegance, Tiffany Amber has proven time and again that style is not something that foreign designers have a monopoly on and that it is possible for African labels to meet world-class standards.”
