What Being an Innovator Means to Ayana Active

At the heart of innovation lies a profound desire to make a lasting impact. Ayana Active recognizes, however, that innovation does not have to mean coming up with an entirely new invention, but rather, putting a creative spin or personal touch on an already existing product with a problem. At Ayana Active, a new and necessary approach is put on activewear, to meet the needs of a specific market of women that Ayana Ife identifies closely with. 

Ayana Ife's diverse cultural background – rooted in Trinidadian descent, enriched by her Muslim and upbringing – ignited the need for designs that resonated with her personal narrative as a woman. Ife found herself looking for clothing that did not speak to her, and her identities. Modest clothing existed, connected to cultural or religious groups outside her own - there was nothing that she could identify with as just a woman. 

There was also a clear need for availability. Larger brands sometimes cater to modest consumers for one season or line, and then forget about the market when moving on to the next best thing. This fosters unrealistic expectations and reflects a lack of genuine innovation.

The brand confronts the ephemerality of seasonal trends in modest wear, prevailing in larger brands. Ayana Active pioneers an innovative approach by questioning this transient model. It strives to build infrastructures and systems that not only make its designs available in every season, but also breathe longevity into the very essence of modest sportswear.

Beyond clothing, Ayana Active's innovation takes the form of a unique perspective on sportswear. The world has activewear, but it does not yet have Ayana Active’s take on activewear. The brand embraces its authentic calling. For Ayana Active, innovation is a dedication to empowering women, helping them feel beautiful, heard, and confident in their clothing. The brand's journey stands as a testament to the idea that being an innovator is about following one's calling with genuine purpose.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
