Raina Blyer launched her line, Ryann, in the summer of 2005, with the idea to use fashion as a platform for environmental and social issues.
On her site she says: “I was not a scientist, but could use what I knew and loved to help make a difference and get a conversation going with issues that were so important to me. I wanted Ryann to be an example of a business run with love, creativity, responsibility and integrity that would hopefully inspire others to do the same.”

Five years later, Blyer is consciously evolving with her line creating feminine tops tailored skirts and luscious summer frocks out of sustainable fabrics like organic cotton, soy and peace silk.
And because she believes in timeless pieces that you’ll love to wear more times than humanly necessary, designs by Ryann are made to comfortably fit you and your lifestyle so that you feel, says Blyer, “like a true fashion warrior.”
Waahoo! That’s my fashion warrior call I’ll use when I see you at EcoSalon Shops! on June 4th.
