A’Kai Littlejohn knew from a very young age that he had a passion for designing women’s fashion. This passion has now taken him all the way to New York Fashion Week where he will debut his solo show for his anticipated Spring/Summer 2020 collection on Saturday, September 7th at the Hotel 50 Bowery located at 50 Bowery Street in NYC.
A’Kai is a luxury women’s wear designer. As a toddler, A’Kai displayed a confident love for design and women’s fashion. His interest was ever prevalent on a daily basis. A’Kai had wonder and excitement in his eyes when he would touch materials and sketch his illustrations. His passion and drive was undeniably noticed by all that crossed his path. With his sketchbook in hand, he was ready to ignite the world with his exuberant energy and his vision for his future.

A’Kai was determined to bring his designs to life. He had displayed trained techniques like the art of draping. He began to teach himself skills. A’Kai interned at the age of 9 for the couture house of Geracci Condello. He learned technical aspects of Fashion Design. A’Kai caught the eye of the critically acclaimed Project Runway with his hard work and dedication. He landed a spot on Project Runway Jr., Season 2. He was the youngest contestant to be cast in the history of the show at the age of 13. After filming, he privately showed his first collection, Spring/Summer 2017. A’Kai has since launched 3 collections and has showcased in New York Fashion Week.
