Ray Darten: Celebrating Culture, Empowering Women

Welcome to Ray Darten, where fashion meets empowerment, and every piece tells a story. Established with a mission to celebrate the richness of African culture and empower women globally, we are more than just a clothing brand – we are a movement.

Our Story:

At Ray Darten, our journey began with a vision to showcase the beauty and diversity of African fashion, through modern African Print and embroidered clothing. Founded by Yetunde Olukoya, we embarked on a mission to create a brand that not only celebrated cultural heritage but also made a positive impact on the lives of women in Africa.

Empowering Women:

Our commitment to empowerment extends beyond the seams of our clothing. Ray Darten believes in providing meaningful work opportunities for women in Africa, contributing to economic growth and fostering self-sufficiency. Every purchase from Ray Darten is a step towards supporting this mission of empowerment. We employ & empower 100+ women and leading them into a better quality of life. We've also made a commitment to give back to children of Africa through our Ray Of Hope initiative.

Celebrating African Culture:

Our collections are a vibrant tapestry of African culture, carefully curated with high-quality African Print fabrics, bold prints, and unique designs. From traditional Ankara to modern interpretations, each piece reflects the rich history and artistry of the continent.
