To celebrate this monumental occasion, The 15th anniversary celebrations kick off with the unveiling of the Tiffany Amber, “Nigeria’s Women of Vision” Campaign:
The Women of Vision Campaign is the brainchild of the brand’s Founder/Artistic Director Folake Folarin-Coker who in recognising the achievement of having built a successful and sustainable business over 15 years, acknowledges that one of the greatest things that she has experienced in growing her empire, is the incredible women she encounters on a daily basis. These women are inspirational, they are empowered and she wants to share them with the world. Most specifically the younger generation of women, searching for strong female role models; After all in Folake’s own words “Girls with dreams, become women of vision!”
The Women of Vision Campaign, in line with the brand’s age, feature 15 women between the ages of 18 and 60 representing Tiffany Amber’s multi-generational following, such as (L-R); Ife ‘Cuppy’ Otedola, Ifeyinwa Ighodalo, Funke Opeke, Ola Orekunrin, Eku Edewor, Peju Alatise, Uche Majekodunmi, Adesuwa Onyenokwe, Adenike Ogunlesi, Oluchi Onweagba Orlandi, Maryam Augie, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Omoyemi Akerele, Uche Pedro & Jumoke Oduwole.
This campaign is slated to run for the next 5 years spanning a selection of women across Africa; with the purpose of developing a mentorship scheme. Mentees will have the opportunity to intern and seek advice and support from these women in their respective fields. After a year-long period, the mentees shall graduate from the scheme and will be assisted in spearheading their dream careers.
