This week’s style star is Akin Faminu. Akin is a medical student, a fashion blogger, and a stylist.
Despite Akin’s love for the modern day man’s style, as he consistently sites David Beckham, Noble Igwe & Uti Nwachukwu as style favorites, I think Akin’s style tends towards old Hollywood.
As a matter of fact, if you spend a long time on his blog you might start to believe you are in the 50’s

Where are your favorite places to shop?
I shop online most of the time, asos especially and anywhere else I see good stuff basically
What is your favorite item in your closet right now?
My shoes, all of them!
Do you have any style icons?
Yes, I do. I would say David Beckham, Pharell Williams & Steve Onoja
What are your thoughts on Kanye’s style? Would you wear anything from his collection?
Well, I think Kanye makes his style as original as possible and that’s what fashion is about really, what suits your person. I would definitely wear stuff from his collection, maybe I would style them differently but wearing his designs would not be an issue for me.
Which celebrity would you swap closets with?
David Beckham still, I think his style is amazing. Whether he is looking dapper or laid back, he always pulls it off.
What do you wear on the average day?
An average day means a day I am in school, and I’m a medical student so school is an hospital. Hence, I like to keep it comfortable but sartorial.
What will you never be caught dead wearing?
Some things are your style straight up, while some things aren’t. I don’t like to put anything off, it might not be the exact thing you’ll love to wear but you can always style it in a way that will suit you. So, off the top of my head I can’t say this is what I would never wear.
Which male Nigerian celebrity’s style can you relate to the most and which are your favorites?
Quite a number, but the likes of Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Noble Igwe, Uti Nwachukwu definitely pull their outfits off almost all the time.
Who are your favorite designers in the Nigerian fashion industry?
There are a lot of great designers right now, but my favorites will definitely be Mai Atafo, Orange Culture, & Mcmeka
