This month’s cover girl is fashion designer extraordinaire Folake Coker, creator & lead designer of award winning fashion label, Tiffany Amber. But she is not alone; the fashion darling shares the cover with her best friend and spanking new business partner Nkiru Adekoya. From being named the first ever recipient of The African Fashion Designer of the year award to making the Forbes Power Women List in 2013, Folake the mother, designer, daughter and friend has achieved immense success but not without facing challenges. Through it all, the woman she describes as her “sister from another mother” Nkiru has been there.
In our exclusive sit down with the dynamic duo, they talk candidly about marriage, career, children, personal growth and everything life throws in-between as they unveil the new direction for Tiffany Amber, and a friendship that inspires.
