The tough, competitive, and nerve-wrecking fashion industry didn’t stop Addie from following her heart and launching D’IYANU January of 2014. Iyanu translates to “miracle” or “wonderful” in the Nigerian Yoruba language, and D’ means “of” or “from” in French. With the combination of her Yoruba and French background, the name D’IYANU, “of something wonderful” was established to remind everyone they are uniquely made and to dress like it. Addie also made it her purpose to help build schools and clinics for underdeveloped communities in Nigeria and other African countries. Since the start of D’IYANU, the fashion brand has donated over $20,000 to causes that support African communities, Boys and Girls Club of Philadelphia, and The Women’s Safe House.
