There are great visionaries hidden all around the world. This is where you find them.
Akara fashion Marketplace Akara [akara] is new a curated marketplace and establishing a hub for eco-friendly and slow fashion emerging designers within the sphere of dark fashion and avant-garde. Based in Sweden, we scour the world to bring you the most prominent and interesting emerging designers.
In an ever more competitive environment, Akara works to empower small-scale designers. For many designers, it’s getting increasingly more difficult to compete against large established companies, gain exposure, scale their business, and connect with people who care about the development process behind the garments. We offer an online platform for these designers and artisans to tell their stories and connect with a global community that shares our artisanal values.
Welcome to Akara Slow Fashion Marketplace
We believe that the most important part of the artisanal art form is the people behind the objects, their story, and their creative work. As many of Akara’s visitors come across our designers for the first time here on Akara, we will have a focus on introducing them in a broader sense. Through interviews and behind-the-scenes posts, we will dig deeper into who they are, what their story is, and where they gain their inspirations.
All purchases through Akara are made directly from the individuals behind the products. By purchasing through Akara, you’re supporting their livelihood and keeping the art form of artisanal wear alive.
What we are doing, is building the definite focal point for rising artisans and designers within the sphere of dark fashion and avant-garde. A place where you’ll discover and get to know the greatest visionaries from around the world, and directly be able to purchase their goods.
Welcome to Akara. This is just the beginning.
