Peace. Love. Light.
The name Araysun ✨ derives from the classic play A Raisin in the Sun. The original play was written by Lorraine Hansberry and the name was inspired by the poem “Harlem” (A Dream Deferred) by Langston Hughes. The play and poem both have somber themes, but their messages of hope, make them beautiful and inspiring. Hope is the nucleus for every dreamer.
Araysun is a lifestyle; euphoric beings exuding their light. Everyone has the ability to exude their light, it’s just a matter of being courageous enough to walk in your truth. We hope to inspire our community to love and to be loved through art and fashion. We want people to be proud of who they are and what they represent.
What we release doesn’t have to make sense or be on trend. We create what’s natural to us, what’s fun for us, what exudes who we are and what makes us feel great. There’s so many rules and standards in this world. The garments and styles you wear should be limitless, because that’s what you are, limitless.
