Andrea Iyamah, by Nigerian fashion designer Dumebi Iyamah, is a black-owned clothing brand. Iyamah's inspiration is color and ethnic cultures, and her brand is a true inspiration for black-owned businesses. With a flair for design and the arts, Iyamah advanced her tailoring skills. She educated herself about fashion, which later fueled the genesis of the A.I. brand at an early age of 17. Many people recognize A.I. for its eccentric and unique take on swimwear. It
uses vibrant colors and cuts inspired by an array of African cultures. It also specializes in ready-to-wear and custom made special event dresses — the first official swimwear collection launched in 2013. Its influences were the brand's African heritage. A blend of retro and various cultures inspired its colors and themes. The brand's ready-to-wear and custom-made special event dresses now shine just as much as the increasingly cutting-edge swimwear collections.
