Double Trouble — Model of the Year Finalists Face off in Fall/Winter ’19 Best Menswear Looks

 
Double Trouble — Model of the Year Finalists Face off in Fall/Winter ’19 Best Menswear Looks


We at Men’s Folio have been on enough photoshoots (Editor: I’ve been doing this for over eight years leh?) to realise that no matter how much one plans it down to a T, things usually go awry — like, looks-end-up-getting-stuck-at-customs-or-a-lightbulb-bursts awry. In the spirit of good fun, we’ve pieced some footage from our latest shoot with our Model of the Year finalists to give one an insight on what happens during a shoot.

Watch how photographer Jeff Chang slowly gets more irate (sorry bro, we love you to bits), Editor-in-Chief Wilson Lim makes a mess (Editor: WHAT?), and how steadily panicky our stylist Sapphire Chin gets. As we’ve mentioned, it’s all in good fun — sort of.
