These 2 Nigerian Designers Have The Naomi Campbell Seal Of Approval
Since visiting for Arise Fashion Week last year, Naomi Campbell has been loud and proud about her love for Nigeria. The iconic supermodel recently returned for the show again, and during her media run, revealed two of her favourite Nigerian fashion designers.
Even though there is an increase in diversity in the global fashion industry, there is still a gap in the market for African fashion. Naomi Campbell’s self-assigned role in the Nigerian fashion industry seems to be to give these brands more visibility, and she is definitely dedicated to it.
Speaking with BBC, the supermodel said:
“We want the world to know and be able to get out there and change the perception of Africa that they have.
I want them to see young and emerging designers from all across Africa, ’cause they’re immensely talented, and they have the right to be championed, just like any other designer.”
She revealed that Kenneth Ize and Tiffany Amber are amongst her favourite African designers working today. This must be a great feeling for the Nigerian designers, as their work is being recognised on a global level, by one of the most important people in the fashion industry.
In 2013, Kenneth Ize launched his eponymous label, which is known for being daring and audacious. With a showroom in Paris and stockists in Vienna, Switzerland and Nigeria, the brand is definitely among a spate of Nigerian designers at the forefront of this African fashion boom.
Founded by Folake Coker in 1998, Tiffany Amber is easily one of the most prestigious Nigerian fashion brands. Their opulent designs have been coveted by many over the years, and they have now expanded with a diffusion line for young millennials, TAN by Tiffany Amber.
