It’s not everyday that we have a local model walking for international runway, much less say for Milan Fashion Week. But this year, one male model made history by being the first Singaporean to walk for Milan Men’s Fashion Week: Emporio Armani !

And I couldn’t be more proud, because though we’re not close, I’ve known Andee; and I couldn’t be more happy for him for what he has achieved in modelling!
To be able to walk for any designers for Fashion Week (New York, London, Milan, Paris) is considered really prestigious. I mean, you’ll be strutting in the designs of top designers and high street brands! And for any model, it’ll look really good for your portfolio; opening many doors and opportunities.
To me, Andee’s debut was not pure luck; he’s probably one of the most hardworking Singaporean male model I’ve seen. Starting to model only from last year, and having to juggle his final year for his degree in Laselle, I still constantly see his photoshoot lookbooks on my facebook feed and him taking up runway jobs for local shows.
It’s tough, but having known Andee through dance, many will tell you that if he has his eyes on the prize, he’ll make sure he work for it to reach his goals and dreams. As they say,” the harder you work, the luckier you get“.
Now he’s moving on to Paris Fashion Week, let’s wish him all the best for castings and may he get booked for more shows! Singapore’s Next Top Model~ Follow his Fashion Week journey on his instagram too!
