The fashion label derived its name “Aku” from a girl born on Wednesday, originated from the “ewe” tribe in Ghana, and Vi to mean Vibrant; thus Aku+Vi comes to reveal a true reflection of our own uniqueness and self-awareness.

The founder Nana K. Brenu, happens to be the designer behind luxury brand 1981. The new sister brand Aku+Vi has been launched to celebrate sisterhood and contemporary life. The ideal client is a girl that is woke i.e conscious of her surroundings and in touch with her heritage through her silhouettes, sense of style and enthusiasm. Nana K. Brenu comments that “Aku+Vi garments are youthful, on trend and have feminine silhouettes that are not too girly at affordable prices”. He adds that the rationale behind the new brand is “Every woman needs a sister and Aku+Vi is that sister who is in to celebrate and share in the beautiful experiences of life”.


Debut Collection

The Aku+Vi debut collection channels Modern Renaissance. Modern Renaissance collection was inspired by the need to see the “Aku+Vi” girl rediscovering who she is and proud of what she discovers while taking on the world
