Iconic and Influential
Best known as the costume designer for Beyoncé’s incredible Black is King, powerhouse stylist and designer Zerina Akers is a solid favorite name among artists like Bey and actress/writer/producer Lena Waithe, who continuously push boundaries for the better.
The Dreamer’s Journey
Coming a long way from a W-magazine internship, Akers’ work reflects her passion for risk-taking and experimentation, drawing inspiration from nature and history, and through mixing low-end with high-end brands.
Last year, she launched the Akers and Akers Foundation, a nonprofit organization that incubates emerging designers and teaches much-needed financial literacy skills to the community. Keeping the culture moving forward while keeping the community looking sharp is how Zerina Akers dreams in Black.
