Stylist Richard Akuson collaborates with Photographer Terna Iwar for an Unusual Fashion Editorial




Some months ago, I collaborated with classically trained fashion Photographer Terna Iwar for a nearly unusual fashion editorial. While a lot of you might not know this, but before there was Richard Akuson ‘the fashion writer’ there was actually Richard Akuson ‘the editorial stylist’ and doing this was just as exciting as ever. Our idea for the shoot was simple; to try our best to capture movement/motion in its purest and most graceful form – hence the blurriness.

It was important we got someone who could move with grace like model, dancer and creative artist Marryam Moma who brought so much effervescence to the shoot. The editorial exclusively features looks from budding womenswear designer brand Maison Mimi’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection with makeup done by Hauwa of Ajike Beauty.

    This Richard can just like to praise himself. Can you let your work speak for itself?!!!

      im so glad im not the only one who can smell his bullsh!t. look at I bleed fashion, fashion is constant in my life, me me me me me me.
      he is so full of him self.

      everybody takes blurry pictures, and they delete them from their devices. so I dont know whats so unique about this crap.

      u are trying so hard to be artistic but u dont have any artistic bone in ur body.
      I’m not hating just stating the obvious.

    Does this mean that the clothes enable u move effortlessly or they just said let’s try this and it came out blurry? The blurry red one takes the cake for me.

    I agree…stop blowing your horns…if your ‘style’ is as great as you claim, we’ll see.

    Hold up you guys. Dis we just look at the same post? First off, this is an actual artistic editorial and i like it. Secondly, i don’t understand what all yoir rants are about, the guy hardly said anything to warrant all these except if you all know him personally and are only extending all that personal drama to this post.

    Am i missing something? Maybe some bit to this puzzle?

    “While a lot of you might not know this, but before there was Richard Akuson ‘the fashion writer’ there was actually Richard Akuson ‘the editorial stylist’ ”

    He didn’t use an adjective to describe Richard the fashion writer OR editorial stylist… Lol where exactly did he praise himself or imply that he’s so stylish?
    AND just like that, he’ll become BN’s most hated.
    Lol everyday, something new to use and bash someone new.

    Another attempt at selling bullsh*t… Thanks but not thanks. There is a reason some things are simply not done.
