Akese Stylelines is a unique brand by Chicago designer Jennifer Akese that is focused on designing and making custom-made and ready to wear clothing and accessories with an Afrocentric touch.
We are pleased to welcome Chicago-based designer Akese Stylelines to the Oak Brook Artisan Market at Oakbrook Center on Sat & Sun, Aug 10-11, 2019. This 2-day outdoor market showcases the Midwest’s finest artisans in fashion, food, home goods + art.
Incorporating African prints with western fabrics to create unique, classy and unforgettable pieces of clothing is what separates Akese Stylelines from the rest. Every designed piece is well thought through with you in mind and is focused on making the wearer feel special and pampered. Extreme attention to detail is a clear strength of the line.
For most formal wear, Akese Stylelines specializes in wedding gowns, evening gowns, semi formal, corporate wear, casual wear and children’s clothing. Their ready to wear pieces also include smart casual wear, cocktail dresses, blouses, skirts, blazers, coats and statement jewelry for all occasions. All items are handmade.
