MINT by Draya Michele :: vs :: Andrea Iyamah

When Draya Michele started her swimsuit line on her first season of Basketball Wives LA it was a collection of simple, matching Bikini tops & bottoms. Her collection today is quite expansive and A LOT more creative. People are saying that Draya owes her new found creativity to swimsuit designer Andrea Iyamah. While they have some similarities (particularly in the image below), I don’t believe that Draya completely stole her ideas from Andrea Iyamah. There may have been a little creative influence here and there and then of course we have to remember this is fashion! She’s making what people are demanding!

Heres Whats happening at Andrea Iyamah (Read Post on Andrea Iyamah & Winifred Taylor). It’s a little bit more edgy while Draya’s line is a little bit more risqué. Personally I love both and fully intend on having a draw full of both this summer!
