Akua Murray’s Work in Vogue

Akua Murray works in collaboration with many international music companies. Her work on the Beck music video saw her become the stylist to famous actresses Alia Shawkat, Tessa Thompson, and Rachel Even Woods. And I have to say that Thompson and Evan Wood looked impeccable in the video. Thompson wore a sophisticated brown leather jacket and an authentic cowboy hat; however, Evan Woods wore an on-trend red fire engine blouse. Akua Murray Adoboe designed both costumes. It’s gutsy decisions like this that’s gotten the fashion and entertainment world talking about her. 

Akua Murray work in MotherStruck!

MotherStuck! is a hilarious theatre production about the author’s story, starting in Jamaica and ending as a famous woman in America. The protagonist’s name is Staceyann Chin, a lesbian girl who strives to become a mother. The New York Times hilariously described it as “Staceyann Chin’s chronicles and quest to become pregnant.” In this production, Chin wore the costume that was designed by Akua Murray. The costume expressed the hardship and struggle that Chin experienced at the start of her career. Meanwhile, the wardrobe related to the author’s story in a visceral way.
