My name is Benedicte, founder of AKIKOSMOOD, a creative studio based in Geneva, Switzerland. I have a degree in Graphic Design and have been practicing the art of painting for many years. Daughter of a designer and great-granddaughter of a pattern creator at the silk factories of Lyon at the beginning of the 20th century, I have evolved in the midst of rich and varied influences. My heart beats for Japanese culture, but my inspirations and eclectic tastes allow me a great freedom of creation.
Ever since I was a child, I have been driven by the desire to draw women and dress them with my pencil strokes. I first thought of trying my hand at being a fashion designer but I realized that what I really liked was conceptualizing while drawing.
I had the great chance to train with a Swiss fashion designer who teaches at the Haute Ecole d'Art et de Design de Genève and this reinforced my desire to perfect my knowledge in this field.
After my children were born, I made my desires come true, studied graphic design and there it all became clear. I had to find a link between drawing, fashion and clothes and this link, naturally it was fabric! I continued to specialize in textile design and became a fabric designer.
I've taken the plunge and it's an exciting adventure, I'm learning every day that goes by and looking forward to every day that comes along. I have the great pleasure to make you discover my world.
