Apr 23, 2021

Born in a small town in Finland Aki Choklat grew up with dreams of becoming the next fashion design icon. Aki’s journey into footwear was not easy and took hardwork, commitment and an endless pursuit to fulfill his passion. Now a seasoned designer and entrepreneur Aki has started and sold his own brands as well as collaborated and consulted for others around the world. Today, Aki is the Chair of the Fashion Accessories Design Department at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI. A school mostly recognized for its automotive design department, CCS has gone through a transformation and has really embraced footwear and fashion. Join me on this episode of the Kicks Factory podcast to experience Aki’s journey from a small town to the motor city.
