Folake Folarin-Coker, Tiffany Amber Nigeria Founder and CEO

Folake Folarin-Coker, born in Lagos, Nigeria, launched Tiffany Amber label in 1998.

Folarin-Coker is credited for revolutionizing the Nigerian fashion industry.

Folake schooled in Switzerland, England and Scotland then relocated to Nigeria in 1998 to become a lawyer.

Despite holding a Masters Degree in Petroleum Law, her love for fashion reigned supreme over all.

Having spent most of her childhood in Europe exploring different cultures, she successfully translated her passion to the foremost fashion brand in Africa with outstanding global recognition.

In 2008, in addition to her main line, Folake extended her creative borders by adding two more lines under Tiffany Amber Nigeria; TAN by Tiffany Amber – Diffusion LinE and Folake Folarin – Couture Line.

In 2008, Folarin-Coker for the first time, showcased at the Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week in New York.

The collection was heralded by such rave review that Folarin-Coker was invited to showcase for the second time making her the first African-based designer to showcase for two consecutive seasons at the New York Fashion Week.

Folarin-Coker won designer of the year at the African Fashion International (AFI) in 2009 in Johannesburg.

The AW 2011 Fearless Luxury collection won Fashion Brand of the year at the Arise Magazine Fashion Week.

The brand is, without a doubt, fast becoming the premier African lifestyle brand.

Folarin-Coker has become a mainstay in the fashion industry as she continues to develop a strong design philosophy by staying true to her vision of a true woman.
