Raya is a brand I founded in 2014. Accessories design was always the area of fashion design I was most interested in. While living in Nigeria I came to realise there were no major jewellery brands and all of the fashion industry was oversaturated with only clothing brands at the time. Although my background was in bag design I wanted to try something new. Starting with very small quantities, I designed a small capsule collection, along with the logo and packaging. This sold out immediately. Since then it has gone on to be the premier fashion jewellery brand in Nigeria. It is now seen on women at weddings, music videos, movies, red carpets, magazines and billboards globally, with publications such as Vogue and GT Bank adverts in Heathrow airport showing my designs. Now Raya stocks in stores in various countries around Africa as well as globally online. Please click here to access the Raya website.
