Philadelphia, PA (February 2020) - Every February, the celebration of Black History Month observes the importance of African Americans in United States history.

The eye-catching patterns and vibrant prints, ranging from $19.99-109.99, set this collection apart while still offering the affordable price range of the previous collections.

The tough, competitive, and nerve-wrecking fashion industry didn’t stop designer Addie Elabor from following her heart and launching D’IYANU in 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.
