Akiko is an experienced petite freelance model and a diverse physical performer, with many talents including: pole acrobatics, character walkabout and half of a stage double act -ExTrAñO!
Based in East Sussex- UK. Willing to travel across the UK and abroad.
Akiko started modelling in 2009 where she first entered a model competition and got through to the finals. As a petite model it was impossible to work in fashion – and be taken on by an agency, so instead she started working freelance. Since then she has worked with a range of talented photographers on various exciting projects and collaborations with clothing and jewellery designers. She regularly shoots alternative fashion, latex, pin-up/vintage, lingerie, concept imagery, hair and make up, body painting, fantasy, implied nude, artistic and fine art nude.
Akiko is also an accomplished performer, well recognised on Brighton's Burlesque and Cabaret scene. Having trained in pole fitness in 2012 at a pole society (Polesoc) at Sussex University she started to perform in shows and then also continued to self teach at home. Akiko's diversity, elegance and unique style has been well received by the crowds as well as other performers and promoters and has given her the opportunity to perform at many sell-out shows across the city.
