Ray Darten specializes in creating African inspired fashion & handmade clothing and accessories.
Our mission is to build a creative brand that also has a purpose for good. We use our styles to tell stories of Nigerian culture and heritage.
With our new production facility in Nigeria, our purpose is to drive socio-econmic change. We source all fabrics and all the clothing is handmade within Africa. 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.
Ray Darten was an idea by Yetunde Olukoya, a medical doctor turned designer, who made it come to life. She transitioned it from a hobby to taking a huge leap to share her passion and purpose with the world.
The name Ray Darten was birthed from a wordplay with her kids' Yoruba names; Ire, pronounced eRAY, DARa & TENi.
