A'Kai Littlejohn is a high school senior and fashion designer.  A'Kai will received national television attention on January 4th, when his runway model, Chelsea Vaughn, made an appearance as a contestant on the ABC TV show "The Bachelor."  She wore A'Kai's "Emila Gown" on the show.  

A'Kai is no stranger to the Hauppauge Community.  We have been following him for many years now as he continues to make a name for himself in the fashion world.  He appeared on "Project Runway Junior" at just 13 years old.  He has also debuted several collections at solo shows for New York Fashion Week.  

A'Kai received the "2019 Emerging Fashion Designer Award" from "Cine'moi Network's Cine Fashion Film Awards" in Beverly Hills California.

We would like to share more good news from A'Kai!  He has been accepted to "Parsons School of Design" via his early submission application!  His dad told us, "A'Kai has been working hard his entire life to accomplish this goal.  This is the only school he applied to.  He first mentioned going to 'Parsons School of Design' at the age of three."

Congratulations to A'Kai on all of his wonderful accomplishments!
