The “Designer Spotlight” series is back and I’m very pleased to introduce to you a one of a kind, hardworking, and talented designer. Akofa Kagni is a young and charming lady from Togo (West Africa), residing in Los Angeles, CA.
Despite living in the US, Akofa makes constant trips to her birth-land to procure the materials and ensure that her customers are provided with the best and most trending fabrics from her motherland; fabrics which mainly constitute her urban African designs. Her products range from both men and women unique apparels to fabulous accessories.
One of the awesome things about blogging is the ability to introduce to my readers great products and services they may have never heard of before or anywhere else. This post isn’t sponsored in any way, but I had the opportunity to know and learn more about Akofa and her designs; and I just had to brag about her to the world! 🙂 I have nothing but great things to say about this young lady and her work; but don’t take my word for it. Check out some of her collections on her website . Not only is she a talented designer and entrepreneur, she’s also a philanthropist who essentially help fund the education of a group of young girls who also receive appropriate training in making some of the products she designs. How awesome is that!

One of my foci as a blogger and content creator is to share inspirational and valuable information with you, my readers; information that improves or increases the value of your fabulous life! This being said, I hope bringing back this series where I showcase new and upcoming designers (or entrepreneurs) will contribute to adding value to your day and life while shining the spotlight onto them! – Oh and remember, when you support small business, you’re supporting a dream!
Lots of love,
