Andrea Iyamah's designer: Founder and creative director Dumebi Iyamah, who hails from Nigeria, started Andrea Iyamah bridal after years of fine-tuning her tailoring skills. The label was launched when she was just 17, and it's now become the well-known evening wear brand it is today (you've probably seen Andrea Iyamah on the red carpet, too!).
The Andrea Iyamah Bride: seeks designs that are classic with a touch of uniqueness in the details. She's attracted to feminine cuts that accentuate her figure, and appreciates the art of fine tailoring. "The brand is both honored and proud to serve women from all walks of life who have chosen to walk down the aisle in our signature bespoke pieces," Iyamah told POPSUGAR.
Andrea Iyamah's Current Mission: "We have all had to adjust to the changing tides. As a company handling brides, our priority was to find the best means of communicating with our clients who had to make changes due to the COVID-19 lockdown. Transparency was and has always been our mode of operation at our brand. It takes a lot of emotional intelligence to handle brides and we realized very early that professionally handling them with truth and care was going to be the best way forward. We have a very strong team of bridal consultants who are trained to do this and go beyond their call of duty to be there for their clients. The production team had to adjust timelines, but we are communicating with our clients the whole way through."
Where to Shop: Online or at the bridal showroom in Lagos, Nigeria.
