In Model for Hope 2011, we sent our writer down to the event to do what he does best- put in a lot of effort. Herman talks to fashion designers, a hip hop band and 2 handsome guys about fashion taboos, women and pressing social issues. Herman also tries to hit on the lead vocalist of Sixx.
What is Model for Hope 2011?
Model For Hope 2011 is a student-led charity event for a student audience, aimed at raising awareness of the plight of victims of human trafficking and sexual slavery. Organised by youths from ACJC, ACS(I) and NUS, the event aims to juxtapose — through the medium of fashion — the comfortable lifestyles of Singaporean youth, with the deprivation, degradation and suffering of modern-day victims of sexual slavery.
Most of the staffers in the PopConversation team are chic, stylish and aesthetically pleasing; our writer, Herman, on the other hand, has a very nice personality.
This week, Herman meets David Wang for a casual interview about design, fashion and dressing to impress. They also talk about that 2 storey tall Abercrombie and Fitch clean-shaven male model poster just outside of Knightsbridge and how it objectifies men.
This week, Herman meets Arthur Acuna and his beautiful wife Maritina Romulo for a candid interview about love, acting and the show business. We also talk a little bit about Justin Bieber.
