He went from college basketball star, to model, to makeup/hair expert to studying physical therapy (which he wanted to do since playing ball-so, I guess this story has come full circle).
The one constant is his love of style. Having worked backstage with the likes of Diane Von Furstenberg (who loves him), to Oscar de la Renta, to Max Azria AND having done makeup/grooming ON folks like Kenneth Cole (himself), the great Aretha Franklin (she exclaimed, “Ooh! Very nice! So natural!) and Chanel Iman (first meeting her at Jason Wu’s show way back when), Antwan knows a thing or two about style. He doesn’t follow trends, looks for quality and spares no expense. Antwan adores suits by Hugo Boss, shoes by LV/Versace/Gucci, leisure clothing by Nautica & Nike (avid Jordan collector), and designer accessories (wallets, cufflinks & watches).

I got access to his closet! Here are some of his “favorite things”- beloved pieces from his wardrobe and tear sheets from his magazine shoots.
I'm a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I've been "reporting" from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL! I've been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
