MEET ANDREA IYAMAH
Andrea Iyamah is a fashion brand that hardly needs introduction on the fashion scene. The brand is owned by Andrea Iyamah, a fashion designer of Nigerian background. Andrea is so talented and gifted that she started her journey in the fashion world at the age of 17. Before she started the brand in 2011, Andrea had taken time to learn all that she needed to know about fashion. She read, studied and practiced a lot in order to sharpen her knowledge and skill in creating fabulous designs and clothing.
THE JOURNEY SO FAR…
As a result of Andrea’s passion for fashion, her brand gained popularity and fame in no time. Taking a bold dive into the world of swimwear which strikes a balance between modernity and cultural values, Andrea Iyamah has firmly planted its roots in the soils of fashion worldwide.
In addition to bikini and swimwear, Andrea’s brand also creates custom-made outfits and ready to wear clothing. After she launched her first official swim collection in 2013, some of her outfits enjoyed patronage from top celebrities in the United States such as Issa Rae, Kate, Hudson, Ciara, Gabrielle Union and many others.
WHAT IT TAKES TO ROCK OUTFITS BY A. I.
Those who are familiar with the Andrea Iyamah style know that the brand is synonymous with quality, beauty, attention to detail and class. Andrea’s brand creates designs that are meant for the bold and courageous individual who is unafraid to make a statement and be the centre of attention. Basically, if one is timid and is the ‘shy type’, her outfits are clearly not for you. One has got to be passionate, daring, and unafraid to let those curves show.
SUCCESS FAVOURS THE STEADFAST…

So, it’s a win-win situation for Andrea. Now,her brand operates out of Lagos, Toronto and New York. From these locations, the brand’s team members work tirelessly to create designs that meet up to modern standards and also captures the African essence and spirit. It’s only a matter of time before the brand has a branch in nearly every country in the world.
