The Inaugural Mens' Fashion Week

Big thanks to the Word of Mouth Communication team who was so kind to invite me to the first and most prestigious fashion week ever in Singapore Fashion history, The Mens' Fashion Week 2011.
It is not only the first one in Singapore, but It is indeed, the first one in South East Asia!
So here are some compilation of the shows that I managed to attend!
Bodybound by Kim Choong Wilkins is the first show that Fhenny and I attended, Thanks God I had a companion for the night. Awesome was the word to describe this whole collection. The future forward style and the craftmanship in every single piece of clothings featured. My favorite pick will definitely be the sparkling sweater with spiked sleeves later on featured on Designare Homme Magazine with my favourite model in it, Carlos Macedo, shown above.
The brand that had started back in 2009 was using black as the colour theme
and in Bodybound,
There is nothing masculine about being reserved, Menswear needs to be dazzling again, and that is what we strive for.

 Passion by David Gan.
Fashion by Jason
This is probably one of the best collaboration between local fashion designer and local hair stylist.
David Gan is no other than the hair maestro in Singapore and featuring the new comer in the local fashion industry, Jason by JR Chan.
The collection kept everyone wondering because no news were given before the show and definitely it was exciting since it was the first all male models hair show ever done by our own celebrity hair stylist.
When the fashion show started, men models led by Phillip Huang, the face of the MFW 2011, entered the stage and bringing the feeling of the primitive with the long textured hair, definitely credit to the hair maestro. The collection was simply stunning especially the accessories they are wearing. I was particularly dragged my attention to the stacked crescent necklace.
Overall the whole collection was breathe-taking and definitely showing what fashionable cavemens will wear.
Jason is available in local concept store, Hide&Seek.
and it was indeed one of the shows with the most number of local artistes as the first row seaters, name some like Fann Wong, Fiona Xie, Pat Mok, and Belinda Lee.
Shanghai Tang
 Shanghai Tang was one of the show that I was looking forward with my mom and grandma a fan of this Hongkong Brand. Shanghai Tang show was indeed a bit different with the addition of the female models as the spices in the show. One thing that I totally love about Shanghai Tang that is they never forget to have a little bit touch of Chinese in the collection and in this collection is definitely The Mandarin Collar which definitely will make its comeback!

And definitely, thanks Shanghai Tang for the goodie bag!

So after Shanghai Tang, Silvia and I were looking for Bryanboy, and at last..
