Aku+Vi is the name for the vivacious and empowered young sister and friend every modern woman needs.

Launched at the Untamed Empire Concept Store located in Accra (Ghana), the fashion label derived its name “Aku” from a Wednesday born girl 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.

Founded by Nana K. Brenu, also the designer of the internationally acclaimed luxury brand 1981, Aku+Vi has been launched to celebrate sisterhood and contemporary life.

The Aku+Vi girl is particularly conscious of everything happening around her and is also in touch with her heritage through her silhouette, sense of style and enthusiasm.


Nana K. Brenu, states “Aku+Vi garments are youthful, on trend and have feminine silhouettes that are not too girly at affordable prices”.

On his decision to launch a sister brand to 1981, Nana K. Brenu explains that “Every woman needs a sister and Aku+Vi is that sister who is in to celebrate and share in the beautiful experiences of life”

The Aku+Vi label is designed with the aim of creating beautiful striking pieces that enlivens the natural characteristics of the modern energetic and savvy girl.

“Modern Renaissance” is the name of Aku+Vi’s debut collection showcased at the launch event. The collection, which was done in a presentation, saw 9 models each wearing a look from the collection showcased through the “Imagination TV” concept from the “Beast of No Nation” Movie (Any Idris Elba fans out there??); In other words, imagine yourself wearing these beautiful pieces.

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! Aku+Vi is a fun, trendy and easy to wear brand with bold, graphic and batik prints, but with fine details, to match the taste of the vivacious modern girl.
