Fusion – Hue and Saturation Key words: Control. Masculinity. Uneven vs. Solid colors. Perforation. Clean lines. Spatiality. Colors are distorted and mediated by cutting, breaking and interfering with the surface of the textiles, creating grids, panels and other geometrical shapes. 3D, air-stuffed and mesh techniques are put into play to emulate architectural structures. Excessively even and smooth surfaces mask the tactility of the textile. The fabrics are generally light-weight, crisp and cool to the hand, and high-performance materials are imperative.
Fairytale – Colors of a dream Key words: Mystery. Playfulness. Ambiguity. Hide and seek. Decadence. Allure. Eccentricity.

Janet Alyegbusi Design
Aiyegbusi, President and Designer of RANTI EXCLUSIVE, was born in Nigeria, West
Africa. At an early age, she was exposed to various Nigerian styles, fabrics
and textures and it became quickly evident that she had a passion for fashion.
At age 14, she moved to the U.S. and this passion evolved as she began
experimenting and expressing herself by combining traditional African fabric
with contemporary American style. This creative spirit also led her into the
world of hair and makeup artistry which she continues to practice today. Fueled
by the constant influence of both Neo-African fashion and contemporary sense of
style, Janet launched Ranti Exclusive in 2010.
