Created and designed by Melbourne-based Singaporean, Nelson Yap, the quintessential Benjamin Barker brand marries versatility and style with an emphasis on design, fit, construction and form. This collection presented at Singapore Fashion Week brings together well-crafted and heritage-inspired menswear, which epitomises sartorial elegance with a touch of style and personality. Many well-cut suits were featured along with the clever use of props such as bicycles and umbrellas. The sweet pink blazer featured in this showcase is a good example of how men can carry off sweet pink shades well. By the way, this was the only show featuring only male models at Singapore Fashion Week 2015. The many hot male models strutting down the runway was certainly eye-candy for the ladies in the audience.

With heartfelt thanks to (The Academy of Fashion Professions), I was able to be there in person to witness this awesome live showcase of the stylish menswear collection of the talented Singaporean designer, Nelson Yap, and to share my perspectives with my readers. Thanks for the awesome view from my second row seat which was really great for taking photos!

Apologies for looking so tired as I was out the entire day since early morning, busy with Astrology workshops and missed on attending the Harper's Bazaar showcase even though I had tickets to this show.
