I am ULL alumni who graduated in Arts and Humanities who has a passion for all of the delicate intricacies within the fashion industry! I thrive behind the scenes and much prefer my creative process to be structurally astute. I love to shoot film photography in my spare time, as it is one of the purest art forms that can truly encapsulate a moment in time. I’ve been with AFW for over a year now and I cannot think of a more inclusive, ever changing, and loving organization to be apart of!

My name is Akilah Morris and I’m a native of Lafayette, Louisiana. I’m a recent graduate of UL Lafayette and I plan to attend graduate school soon. As my career starts a main goal of mine is to stay connected with my community and offer my help when I can. Being a part of Acadiana Fashion Week helps with that and so much more. I’m excited to be a part of something bigger than me in my hometown and meet so many new people this year.
