*Cue Stevie Wonder voice … HAPPY BIRTHDAY TIFFANY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
Our favourite contemporary womenswear label just became legal. I’m sorry I cannot keep calm because to achieve 2 decades of consistent creativity in a country like Nigeria is not easy. And TA has done more than that they have put the country on the map in their own fashion forward way.
If you know me, you know I stan Folake Akindele Coker.
Fashion royalty, creative director and founder of TA. For those who are unfamiliar with Tiffany Amber, I’d give you a quick run through the accolades garnered so far.
The brand was founded in Lagos in 1998 by Folake Coker.
Ten years after the launch of the her brand, Tiffany Amber made her first major international debut by showcasing at the Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week in New York.
Blown away by her collections, the organizers of the New York Fashion Show invited her to stage a second show, She was the first African-based designer at the time to have been accorded that privilege in the history of the event.
TA was live at Paris Fashion Week in September 2018, an iconic moment I lived for…
The category was the best of African luxury clothing brands. And being the first Nigerian brand ambassador to be chosen, Tiffany Amber showed up with winning pieces at Luxury Connect Africa. Her collection was titled MADE IN AFRICA, MADE FOR YOU.
The collection was a success and received a stamp of approval from the VOGUE International editor herself; Suzy Menkes.
Ms. Coker was picked (by Suzy) to speak at the 5th Annual Conde Nast International Luxury Conference in Cape Town, April, 2019 – the Premier Luxury Event for Luxury Business and Creative Leaders. The theme of the conference was ‘The Nature of Luxury’ and Tiffany Amber took center stage.
Shortly after, Tiffany Amber presented her AW2019 collection at ARISE fashion Week headlined by supermodel, Naomi Campbell. Another iconic moment!
