Police appeal for help after murder of fashion designer

Police are appealing for help in solving the murder of a young fashion designer. Shaun Akanbi was found stabbed to death at his flat in Kilburn just before Christmas.

Police say he was a prolific social media user and friends and family became concerned when they hadn't heard from him.

Shaun was the founder of the online clothing company Billy Boyce, whose creations are said to have been endorsed by rap stars including Miss Dynamate and Fazer from N-Dubz.

He had set up the Billy Boyce clothing business while he was studying at the London College of Fashion.

Police have set up a murder incident room and can be contacted on 020 8721 4868.

Margaret Feord's report features an interview with Detective Chief Inspector Russell Taylor.

Tributes paid to murdered fashion designer

Billy Boyce was named after Moshoood Abiola Akanbi's father Billy. The fashion house is described as Mayfair style fused with Camden street culture on its official website.

Tributes have been paid to Middlesex University law graduate Akanbi on social networking websites.

Aries Lachey left a tribute on the Billy Boyce official Facebook page:"R.I.P Shaun you were always very sweet to me. May god bless your soul. Such a shame you were taken so early."
