In a mere five days from 18 – 22 April 2012, the arena of Marina Bay Sands has been turned into a cosmopolintan city of fashion, the ‘Metropolis of Fashion‘ for the prestigious Men’s Fashion Week 2012.
With an enchanting array of magnifique cherry blossoms, within an endless garden of grass and beautiful lightings as you stepped into the venue, this year’s Men’s Fashion Week 2012, which is the first in Asia since it’s inaugural outing last year, just got bigger and better.
Frank Cintamani, Chairman of Men’s Fashion Week, who has coined the fashion event as an ode to ‘Asian Fashion’, conjured up a spectacular, high-adrenaline showcase of sheer fashion mastery from a predominant lineup of Asian designers as well as International designers who make their runway debut; showcasing urban, contemporary to edgy styles to a myriad of bespoke tailoring, as well as avant-garde and futuristic looks to a bigger-than-expected crowd of audience of fashion individuals, high-profile celebrities, international supermodels, and music lovers.
Along with famed Fashion Producer Daniel Boey who has helmed the event as it’s Creative Director, the Men’s Fashion Week is built on a revolutionary idea by fusing the worlds of both fashion and music together. It was a totally different and unique experience for all who have attended the five-day-strong fashion event.
Here are some of the best moments of the Men’s Fashion Week 2012:
