at the last men’s fashion week, herworldplus editor niki bruce picked 6 fresh faces off the catwalk and proclaimed them ‘singapore’s next top male models’.
17 months later and on the cusp of another men’s fashion week, we track down some of the guys to find out how they’ve been progressing with their modelling career.
ian luah, long haired and lithe-limbed, is easily the most successful of the 6. since his debut at men’s fashion week, ian has walked countless catwalk shows for labels as diverse as comme des garcons, factotum, casely-hayford, joe chia , reckless ericka and thomas wee , appeared on covers for men’s folio and urban , modelled in seoul and was the subject of a ZBnow cover story.
the twins, YuRui and YuZe , were hand picked by the fashion director of L’Officiel Korea to appear in a mega fashion editorial right after fashion week. they have also walked for J Lindeberg, parco, takashimaya, reckless ericka, thomas wee , robinsons and bodybound. the twins are taking a hiatus from modelling as they are busy fulfilling their national service obligation to the nation.
gabriel DS has managed to successfully juggle a musical career ( he is a member of the cult band caracal ) with one in fashion , snagging the mrHoward menswear campaign and working for the likes of joe chia, i.t , thomas wee, reckless ericka, parco and designaire homme
