Men stripped jeans to win prizes at Levi’s 501 Party

Warning: The content of this blog post may content materials NSFW (not safe for work), if you find men stripping off their jeans on stage offensive, I suggest you skip this post. Just kidding! There’s nothing really obscene about this, because I have censored it for you.

Last Wednesday, I attended the 987FM RSVP Party at Zouk. The last time I went 987FM RSVP, I ended up on stage hugging a FHM girl (click here to read about it) so this time round, I decided to remain low profile and watched how the contestants had fun.

Actually, we were slightly late. By the time we entered the club, Double D Dee Kosh & Divian and Sonie had already selected members from the audience to come and join them on stage. The instructions for the first game was to get the female contestants to string through the jeans of the male contestants and the male Levi’s models with a thin rope. One of the male contestants’ jeans was too tight and in a good spot, and under the encouragement of the DJs, he stripped!

Of cos, some of us were shocked, more so by his courage than by the act itself. Judging from the video below, the guy was probably traumatized after the game and needed a beer to calm his nerves.

The programme went on with dance performance followed by models catwalking down the runway with the collection of Levi’s 501 fashion.

After the fashion show, The Muttons Vernon and Justin played a game of telematch with local celebrities, Ya Hui and Ian Fang, who are also Levi’s 501 ambassadors.

William Tan from www.onlywilliam.blogspot.com took part in the telematch which involved putting on a pair of jeans and bottoming up a mug of beer.

Judging from the photo above, if you guess that Ya Hui’s team had won, you’re right!

To round off the evening, DJ Rozz and Bobby from the Rude Awakening played the final game “pass the bag”. Every time the music stopped, the participants had to pull out a piece of clothing in the bag and wear it.

DSC02032 DSC02033 DSC02037 DSC02039

Somehow this guy (in the pictures below) kept pulling out jeans from the bag. Maybe he was under the influence of alcohol, he decided to remove his own pair of jeans and put on the one he took from the bag. And he did it twice, probably in an attempt to win more attention than the male contestant who stripped during the first game.

And there was also this other male participant who was really sporting. Eventually he had a “make-over” and did an impromptu catwalk to entertain us.

The evening continued with free flow of beer and house pour till 10 pm.

Remember to tune in to 98.7FM on your radio or xin.msn.com for ONLY THE HITS! And check out their Facebook page for more photos of  this 987 RSVP Party!

On the side note, I spotted Ryan Ang, one of the dancers that evening. He starred in the SilkPro commercial along with DJ Rozz. I am impressed the dance moves of Ryan and Rozz in the Hairvolution video.

PARCO next NEXT – Rocks the Rack

Welcome onboard and step up to PARCO next NEXT, where young designers’ vivid imaginations meet fashion fantasies, creating beautiful manifestations from myriad points of references.

On Saturday 18 May 2013, local fashion label, LION EARL invited us to join them on a fashion journey of discovery: from outer space to sailing on the high seas, from plain basics to Peranakan-inspired digital prints. From boxy, airy shapes to body-contour dressing and androgyny. From ghetto chic to the streets of Asia. We witness the launch of PARCO next NEXT latest collection.

Rêvasseur

“Run away and join the navy to sail the seven seas. From cute manga sailors to sexy sirens bidding “ships ahoy!”, Revasseur’s nautical inspiration has everything from naughty to nice!”

Comments: My first reaction to this collection by Revasseur was “oh, how cute!”, it was as if the characters from the famous Japanese manga ‘One Piece’ coming to live on the runway. As we all know Singapore is an island and what other way to bring out the sunny heritage of our country through this nautical-inspired fashion. 

Coupé-Cousu

“The Space Man takes centre stage as this slick men’s collection shines in red, navy and grey. Bold metallic galaxy prints send the look further into outer space.”

Comments: Have you heard of the mission to launch humans onto Mars by 2023? It’s okay if you are not a fan of astronomy because this new collection by Coupe-Cousu offers menswear from both the bold and conservative. Opt for the bright red to bring out your personality or choose the navy or grey clothing sprinkled with star dust, definitely make you shine during the company’s annual dinner and dance.  

KAEHANA

“All women are beautiful. Kaehana embraces all body types and ages. The brand reinforces that all women are unique and have their own individual take on what looks good on them. Her digital prints say, “Celebrate your inner goddess!”

Comments: Actions speaks louder than words as designer Kae Hana walks down the runway in her own designs. KAEHANA label offers a vivid alternative to your usual office wear. Also, do check out my previous article on KAEHANA here

“The designer sees beauty in imperfections and harmony in the unusual. Strange beauty is translated in 20:TWOTHREE’s androgynous collection. The almost “colourless” collection speaks volume in texture, shapes and forms.”

WSDM

“Sends a message of “Happy Thoughts” in their latest menswear collection. A hark back to those happy and carefree days as seen in the use of cotton and knits in cool combinations of strong pastels. The mood is laid back with the use of dots, stripes and checks.”

Comments: Move aside sunshine, WSDM’s happy collection is set to brighten up your Monday and weekend. Pronounce as ‘wisdom’ and not ‘W-S-D-M’, this cool collection has won my heart over by reflecting the gleeful personality of Malcolm Sunny! I can totally see myself spending a whole day at the store and walking away with my pocket empty but heart full of joy.

LION EARL

“Architectural lines blend with the hourglass of the female form. Fluid prints juxtapose with sharp, angled graphics. The result – strong, individualistic womenswear.”

Singapore Shines at Audi Star Creation 2013

945791_10151386701476254_418773823_n

Audi Star Creation, a regional fashion design competition, identifies and nurtures emerging Asian fashion designers. First held in 2010, it’s an event of the annual Asia Fashion Exhange (AFX); the competition is open to aspiring designers between 16 and 35 years who are Asian citizens. Audi Star Creation is spearheaded by the Textile and Fashion Federation Singapore (TaFf) and sponsored by Audi Singapore and supported by fashion house, F J Benjamin.

Temasek Polytechnic student from Apparel Design and Merchandising, Haziq Putra‘s “Pursuit to Freedom” took one of the competition’s three top spots. In addition, the 21-year-old also won the Audi Young Designer Award (AYDA), which is given to the winner whose creation best embodies the Audi design spirit of innovation, technology and progression.

Haziq’s menwear collection featured hand-dyed batik, from which he created a digital print. He also incorporated two distinct Kelantan icons – the Wau Bulan, a giant kite , and the ikan pari, or stingray.

“I thought the collection was very original and I like the fact you could see his design concept of the stingray flow right through. He was creative but not too over the top with progressive design, much like Audi. At the same time, the collection is very well made and seems to be market-ready. I can even see myself in some of his pieces!” commented Jeff Mannering, Audi Singapore’s Managing Director on Haziq’s design.

26-year-old Vietnamese, Vu Ta Linh won the judges over with “The Contour”, a womenwear collection inspired by the Vietnamese rice terraces Ruong Bac Thang in Sapa. Linh graduated from Hanoi London College of Fashion Studies in July 2012, and uses stitching, weaving and embroidery to capture the curves and waves of the Vietnamese heritage.

Bagging the third and final spot was 24-year-old Sun Yi Jin from China, whose womenwear collection drew on the Chinese costumes and handicraft techniques of the 56 ethnic groups in China.

Commenting on her win, judge David Wang, the Vice President of the Textile and Fashion Federation Singapore, said, “What impressed us most was the fact that the collection draws so strongly on history yet manages to come across as modern. That is exactly what we were looking for with this year’s InspirAsian theme – a designer who was able to dig deep into his/her own culture but emerge with something that would fit right in on the streets of New York or Tokyo.”

Each of the three winners will get $10,000 in cash from Audi Singapore, an internship with leading fashion retailer F J Benjamin and the chance to launch a capsule collection at Audi Star Creation 2014.
