We got our first look at Nigerian design label, Tiffany Amber‘s Spring/Summer 2013 collection “Rhythm of Africa” during the ARISE show at the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week presentation in September 2012.

For the label’s 2012 MTN Lagos Fashion & Design Week presentation, fashion lovers were giving a first class opportunity to re-see the critically acclaimed collection, which includes more pieces than the first presentation in New York.

According to the creative director of the label, Folake Folarin-Coker, Tiffany Amber Nigeria tells a “Print Story” with its latest collection, Rhythm of Africa, continuing the love for print which reached its peak in 2009 when the label’s creative director and Founder, created a capsule collection in collaboration with one of the greatest African artists of our time, Kolade Oshinowo.

On the inspiration for the collection, she said “I have always been in love with music. Why? Because music moves me to the depths of my soul. The drum – the sensation it invokes in the spirit and mind. The beat – the rhythm has a different meaning to everyone yet is a coherent universal language. I thought…how can I depict the sensation of the beat, the pulsing beat of the rhythm? And there I had it…the birth of the Spring Summer 2013 Tiffany Amber collection, which encapsulates the Rhythm of Africa.”
