THISDAY ARISE Spring 2010 Collection
THISDAY ARISE Spring/Summer 2010 Collection highlighted four outstanding fashion designers straight from the motherland – ERIC RAISINA, FOLAKE FOLARIN-COKER, (TIFFANY AMBER), David Tlale, and Lisa Folawiyo (JEWEL BY LISA).
TIFFANY AMBER BIO: Folake, a fashion boutique owner (TIFFANY AMBER NIGERIA) + Naija designer , went from practicing law to making herself a bold-faced name in the fashion world in a 10-year span to create a lifestyle. As you can tell from the photo collages that I created, I personally enjoyed each piece from her collection.

JEWEL BY LISA BIO: This rising designer (LISA FOLAWIYO) from Nigeria is best known for using bold vibrant Ankara (each handcrafted) in her ready to wear collection. Can we talk about how fierce Lisa’s runway shoes are???
JEWEL BY LISA Spring/ Summer 2010
ERIC RAISINA BIO: When you do a Google search on ERIC RAISINA’s name the tagline , ‘Haute Texture’ pops up and to me that suits his fashion forward collection. Orginally from Madagascar AND a former Paris style student, Eric’s vibrant Atelier reflects his bi-coastal background. Cambodian silk weaving became apart of his craft and the rest is fashion history.

DAVID TLALE BIO: Straight from the catwalk at the Johannesburg Fashion Week, this South African-based designer DAVID TLALE was awarded Fashion Designer of the Year at the recent ARISE Africa Fashion Awards for his sleek, modern ready to wear collection. Does it hurt that he’s a.) good looking and b.) serious about his craft???
