1. My name is Franklin Akinsete Fashion Stylist of many decades working at the Intersection where Music,Fashion,Film,and The New Online media meet.
I've been involved in fashion all of my life from co-ordinating shoots,styling music videos,fashion editorial,feature films and whatever.
I've worked with the biggest artists in the industry over three decades and I'm as comfortable with Music Royalty on a private shopping spree in Bond St, as I would be buying in a carboot sale on a tight budget with a "Dancehall queen".
That doesn't mean they'll listen but a least I'm true to myself.
FUNNY (One should be able to laugh at oneself)
(All of which I do now simultaneously)

Somebody New who I rate,
"BLUE IVY CARTER "is that 3? lol....
She is THE FUTURE that's why
Busta Rhymes I just love his sound
Mariah Carey somebody needs to get it right with that lady (she's the one that got away)
Mary J Blige "SO COOL"
I've really worked with everybody I wanted to already
"Love Hangover" La Ross at studio 54 STYLE ICON with BIANCA JAGGER
I LOVE WOMEN so nothing it's the idiosyncrasies that make THEM SO FABULOUS
High End Luxury think TOM FORD menswear now, and his days at GUCCI are the BEST THINGS I've ever worn or used
Fantastic I admire the fact that you go for it instead of sitting around bitching about things
Don't let the clothes wear you be confident in your choices
Look in the mirror and critique your choice before leaving, try to look best even for The supermarket
If you're in a Spectacular outfit don't let your choice of footwear spoil the look
FRONT ROW ONLY THOUGH
Let's not go there it's a Family Blog lol....
I LOVE YOU, YOU"RE FANTABULOUS
Sleep with influential photographers or publishers it helps lol....
I love it, when people stop talking is when I'll address things
Shall we say DIVORCEE time over and it's great , really is........
But a bit of gossip is good and very flattering
A really tasty Caribbean inspired feast
Rice and Peas
And a Vegetarian stew with exotic vegetables
I think losing some of the pretence and snobbery would help the industry make more money
If you've been truly involved in fashion it doesn't take long to realise it's "THE EMPERORS NEW CLOTHES"
The more fun you have with it the better
It's hardly LIFE or DEATH lol...
I admire Edward Enninful long term Fashion Director at ID and now At American Vogue, truly talented and a dedication to that WORD FASHION which he has crafted over decades
He's not upcoming but well en route
"Markus Lupfer" for me
