Having begun with a single women’s clothing boutique in Chicago in 2002, AKIRA currently boasts 27 stores and about 500 employees, including stores in Wisconsin, Indiana, and now St. Louis, Missouri. Its international e-commerce website receives over 5 million pageviews per month. AKIRA is known for hip, trendy, and affordable fashion pieces that are unique and on-trend. AKIRA has been featured in Refinery29, Cosmopolitan, People, popular TV shows like Shameless, Empire, Chicago Fire, and many more.
With the customer experience at heart, AKIRA wanted to provide the easiest and most effective way for its shoppers to find the exact item they want from the thousands of products in its catalog.
