D’iyanu and their brand story serves up a great deal of inspiration. I was online when their ad popped up in my feed. With the excitement of “Black Panther” just around the corner, I hoped on over and browsed their website. Me the curious blogger, wanted to know if the business was black owned and not just black faced. I was pleased to find out that D’iyanu is indeed a black owned company and their brand story inspired me tremendously. There selection is huge and to see how passionate they are about quality and keeping things local was an added bonus.
There is so much power in learning about the journey of others. Particularly as an entrepreneur. Sometimes you have drown out the noise and seek out those who are successful then watch and become educated. Take those nuggets of wisdom and continue on your path.
From their website I learned that, “D’IYANU (dee-ya-nu) is a ready-to-wear bold print clothing line offering quality, trendy African inspired fashion at affordable prices. With her love for fashion and passion for self expression through unique clothing, Nigerian born Addie Olutola launched the D’IYANU brand at the beginning of 2014.
