Style Star of the Week: Michael Akortia

When I get dressed in the morning I think about the person that I am going to inspire and encourage to express themselves through the material they wear and the style they create out of it.
It’s not that there’s an item of clothing or accessory that makes me feel most like myself, but rather the way I put everything that I wear together. Small things such as folding the bottom of my jeans, wearing vibrant socks, posing a certain way, or even emphasizing my watch that I am wearing can really make or break my whole look in my opinion. Every little detail matters.
A dream job for me would be owning my own business and being my own boss because no one wants to work under someone and take orders and directions all their lives. We were born to strive to be our greatest and be a factor of our own authority, and that is what I am striving to achieve.
Men’s Fashion Post is a blog that I keep open on my phone almost all the time because it features a myriad of different styles and the elegance and sophistication of these styles are utterly beautiful! I get so many different ideas from just studying their many styles and making it my own.
People don’t know a lot about me but something significant that they don’t know is that I was an extra in a movie called The Admission, starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd. Also people don’t know that my grandfather’s cousin on my step-father’s side, John Kuffuor, was a former president of Ghana.
A mantra that I live by would be “Treat others the way you would like to be treated.” I take great pride in this because it is very important to me that I treat everyone with utmost respect and equality because you never know who you may meet along the way.
