About Akua

There is a distinct lack of culturally diverse designers in the fashion industry. Many are trying to make great strides in showcasing as well as selling their designs. The issue is not lack of talent, but lack of money, not having the resources to let their brand succeed. eGarment District strives to highlight these emerging designers. We believe that we have a responsibility to create opportunities for these designers by celebrating their creativity and ultimately giving them exposure. We strive to be the ultimate online destination for emerging designers with a love for all things fashion. Highlighting the styles and trends of culturally diverse designers is our number one goal. Our mission is to enable users to create shops, explore, as well as, learn about wide selections of unique designs and talented, emerging, culturally diverse designers from all over the world. Our vision is to offer a wide range of high quality fashion by emerging designers within your reach. I've always had a passion for fashion; being inspired at an early age by my very fashion conscious and forward mother. Our love of new trends and style moved me to create something innovative in fashion. After attending a fashion show I was inspired to take on fashion business. My venture is opening doors to all talented, emerging, culturally diverse designers to showcase their craft to the world. With the launch of EGD ecommerce meets fashion and the garment district of the internet is born.
