Fred Aknin



For the love of the fashion business, it's hard work, challenging moments and the collision with Fred's favourite things, dj's and house music, formula one, architecture, style and family. Many great experiences by Fred have crafted his passion and love of style. From the first new wave performance to the many varied friendships with some the iconic artists of our time, create the fabric that is Fred. "My greatest accomplishments will always be friendships forged doing what I love to do. Only eclipsed by the love of my very special family. The term "maverick," originally meaning an unbranded calf, comes from Texas rancher Samuel Augustus Maverick who, following the American Civil War, decided that since all other cattle were branded, his would be identified by having no markings at all. Even the signatures on paintings of famous artists like Leonardo Da Vinci can be viewed as an early branding tool.
