Rhapsody of Arts, fashion

ON November 28, the world of fashion and art fused at an exciting event held by Nigerian designer, Folake Folarin-Coker of Tiffany Amber in collaboration with the artist Kolade Oshinowo.
The show, which held at the Tiffany Amber store in Victoria Island, was an extension of an exciting alliance between the designer and the artist.
His painting Marketmood was the inspiration for the fabric used in Tiffany Amber‘s collection shown at the New York Fashion Week on September 11.
The collection received rave review in the international media such that Tiffany Amber decided to recreate the ‘magic’ in Lagos.
At the Lagos show, Tiffany Amber customers (many garbed in Tiffany Amber!), fashionistas and patrons of art enjoyed a fun-filled day sipping Laurent-Perrier champagne while exploring racks filled with gorgeous clothing by the label including collectors’ pieces from the New York collection and new limited edition pieces. Of course, the art was also an integral part of the day as paintings by Oshinowo were proudly displayed around the store for all to appreciate.
