African luxury brands have slowly been paving the way for other younger designer to follow and also bearing the torch for all that is African fashion and most times the best of it. It’s kind of uncool when these brands we all look up to sorta perform below expectation or take actions you least expect from them. The most striking thing about the Tiffany Amber SS13 collection that just showed at MBNYFW titled ‘Rythmn of Africa’ were the African dancing ladies print which bear very close resemblance to the one used by another Nigerian luxury brand Jewel by Lisa in it’s ss12 collection. The Tiffany Amber design team could have worked harder to create a print that still flows with the collections theme without going to close to the Jewel by Lisa print. Copying aside, its not just not a good look. It’s not like Zara jacking off a Prada print…Tiffany Amber and Jewel by Lisa are both luxury brands.
