In the fashion industry, there are two kinds of designers; the ones who wake up and say; “I want to be a designer!” and the ones who either go to fashion school or pay their dues by working with acclaimed designers in the industry before branching out.
Ejiro Amos Tafiri didn’t “build her Rome in a day”. As an undergraduate at YabaTech she interned at Zizi Ethnic Clothing. After graduating, she joined Out of Africa (Nouveau Collections) as a Production Assistant and a Junior Designer while waiting to be called up for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). During this time, she rose through the ranks to Chief designer. In pursuit of greater challenges, she moved to Tiffany Amber as the Creative Assistant to the Head Designer of the Tiffany Amber design team before starting self name Label; Ejiro Amos-Tafiri.
