Nigerian bespoke designers have no doubt been on top of their games, raising and spreading the flag of the country in and outside Nigeria. One of these iconic Nigerian designers is Folake Folarin-Coker and we would be shining the spotlight on her today.
Folake is the founder of Tiffany Amber, a world-famous iconic label. She began her Label journey in Lagos in 1998. She schooled in Europe where she got an opportunity to interact and engage with various cultures while still at a young age.
Interestingly, this creative designer has a Master’s Degree in Petroleum Law from Switzerland, but as fate or passion would have it, her insatiable love for fashion led her into fashion design.
Her interest to focus on unique fashion designs that appeal to women of various tastes and preferences led her to venture fully into fashion.
