In November 1998, Folake Coker launched Tiffany Amber, the first ready-to-wear label in Nigeria, revolutionizing Nigerian fashion and paving the way for the industry we know and love today. Fast forward 15 years and what you have is a luxurious lifestyle brand that transcends the whole of Africa with outstanding global recognition.
To celebrate this monumental occasion, The 15th anniversary celebrations kick off in September with the unveiling of the Tiffany Amber, “Nigeria’s Women of Vision” Campaign, in perfect partnership with Diamond Woman – an initiative by Diamond Bank, designed specifically for women, by women, providing women with financial, business and lifestyle advice, helping them to achieve their aspirations.
The Women of Vision Campaign is the brainchild of the brand’s Founder/Artistic Director Folake Folarin-Coker who in recognising the achievement of having built a successful and sustainable business over 15 years, acknowledges that one of the greatest things that she has experienced in growing her empire, is the incredible women she encounters on a daily basis. These women are inspirational, they are empowered and she wants to share them with the world. Most specifically the younger generation of women, searching for strong female role models; After all in Folake’s own words “ Girls with dreams, become women of vision!”
The Women of Vision Campaign, in line with the brand’s age, will feature 15 women between the ages of 18 and 60 representing Tiffany Amber’s multi-generational following. The campaign, which was shot in Lagos this summer, by renowned photographer Philip Trimnell, with make-up and hair provided by Maybelline and Dark & Lovely respectively, will be revealed at an exclusive cocktail event on 11th October 2014.
The Women of Vision Campaign will be followed by an Exhibition; Tiffany Amber through the years. Showcasing the brand’s first and most iconic pieces, taking visitors on a journey through the eyes of the designer creating a brand and bringing it to what it has become a decade and a half later, One of the most recognized and decorated fashion labels to come out of the continent of Africa!
The anniversary celebrations will culminate in style with a one-of-a kind Grand-Finale Fashion Show, featuring a collection that the designer has described as “my best collection to date”
