When did you first realize your love for fashion?
I grew up around fashion all my life and knew it was a big part of my life because my mom made it very important. I realized I had a eye for fashion in middle school about 12 years old when I used to lay my clothes out on the bed with accessories and etc. the night before school and consistently receive compliments on my outfits.
How did you come up with the name DayyBella?
DayyBella isn’t just a name, it is a brand also. I created that stage name about 5 years ago from my name ‘Dayira’ and inserted the Bella because it means beautiful . From that point on, I’ve been using that name for my social networks and etc. The reason the name got so big is because I created an enormous fan base over the years just by posting my everyday fashionable life.
Who is your line “Bella Bar” targeted to? What type of clothing do you sale?

How has Atlanta helped you grow and succeed as a Business Woman?
Atlanta is a great city to pursue any dream in the industry (my opinion). There are so many opportunities out here and black people are so supportive of each other. I love it! This city has helped me groomed into this wonderful business woman I am today because there are many people who are in the same field as you and who you can connect with. It’s not a lot of hating, its more helping here and also networking is really big.
