Since then he has been a regular in Australian Fashion Week, showing off his current collections to buyers around the globe.
Akira's work ranges from gorgeous Japanese inspired pieces to more high fashion modern wear. He works most often with natural fabrics that are meticulously layered and embellished to create his signature look. The colours that Akira uses vary through his collections although most revolve around using bright colours and bold patterns.
Akira says that his inspiration mostly comes from the traditional Japanese style Kimono and bridal wear. This definitely makes him stand out in the fashion world as his pieces are very unique yet fit into the high fashion industry.
