Dancing with the Survivors: Akosua-Panin
Akosua-Panin is from Detroit, Michigan. Though artistically gifted before birth; she has been creating clothing designs since around the age of 15. From a young age, Akosua-Panin has created eye-catching drawings; from remarkable portraits to still life. Subsequently, she has continued to use her gift in drawing as an apparatus toward her skill in fashion design. She obtained her Bachelor of Science in Fashion Design & Merchandising at Wayne State University, all while establishing self-titled work named Akosua-Panin. She has found herself focusing on a chic/intricate aspect of dress, while concentrating on maintaining an idiosyncratic appeal by utilizing textiles, patterns and playful uses of color. Chic meets eccentric meets WOW. Her garment creations are hanging works of art!
