AKIRA eCommerce Catalog Stylist


In 2002, AKIRA opened the doors to its first women's clothing boutique in Chicago. Since then, the company has extended its reach to 30+ brick and mortar stores across the US, as well as a thriving eCommerce business (shopAKIRA.com.) AKIRA is extremely well-poised for sustained growth as we continue to build a nationally recognized brand.


AKIRA’s culture has one very large, distinct difference from other fashion competitors: Other-Worldly Customer Service, and Fanatical, Obsessive Attention to the consumer’s needs and desires. The core principle for all employees at AKIRA is to Act and Think Like an Owner, and this belief can be reflected across all areas of the company.



AKIRA is looking for an experienced Catalog Stylist. This person will be responsible for shopAKIRA.com’s visual style representation and will act as one of the main voices of AKIRA’s styling direction.
