Nordstrom featuring accessories from Haitian-American designer

Bien Abyé is the brainchild of Dayanne Danier, a Haitian-American designer who creates elegant pieces that pay homage to her Creole heritage.

Last month, Nordstrom began featuring Danier’s Bien Abyé collection of colorful silk printed face masks, headbands and scrunchies in 10 of its stores in South Florida.

The name bien abyé translates to “well dressed.” The line of handmade products is designed by two female artisan groups in Haiti she has spent the past six years training and mentoring. The items retail between $39 and $57. One in particular, a butterfly print face mask, has been popular and selling out.

Danier, a former resident of Miami and designer for Perry Ellis and Phillips-Van Heusen started with a ready-to-wear collection using the vibrant colors, eye-catching patterns, and rich textures of her homeland, eventually segueing into accessories and home decor. She gives the label authenticity while providing much-needed jobs on the island.

Creating headbands and scarfs wasn’t originally in her plans, she was intent on embroidered table runners and napkins, setting her sights on getting into Williams-Sonoma.

However, during the pandemic, people were focused on virtual meetings and less clothes. She had to pivot to what her customer base wanted. The switch to accessories won her a connection with a Nordstrom buyer.

Forging her own path since 2009 is paying off well for the Haitian designer. See below for pieces from her Nordstrom collection.

Lol wow this can only gets better, capitalize off other people's pain especially people of color, white people always succeed as using black people in the worse way to gain wealth and it is always ok. There are those who are so happy without questioning, but when you cant wait to crumbs from white people or be part of their group it seems like a miracle, how long has she been around, how long has Nordstrom knows about her, why now? Well i guess its about money, as long there is a few dollars coming its ok, and for those who will call my comments negative, do understand some of us are different and far from the slave mentality, we dont have to look up to the white men as saviors, the money is nothing to them, its from slave trades that is why they are so quick to throw it at you, find me one company that is not associate with slavery, may be instead of getting on your knees praising the white men like a god you need to do your home qork and research and find out how those family started those businesses, were those businesses passed on, sold or merged to others? You will be surprise how youre still working for the same people who owned slaves
