Definitely the must-see event this year is the debut of Men’s Fashion Week (through Sun, Apr 3). Expect lots of cool fashion and even lots more eye candy—on the runways that is. Other than the latest releases from brands such as Shanghai Tang, Boss Black and Song Zio, there’s a great line-up of entertainment and after parties featuring DJ Lapsap, K-Pop band Touch, Pan-Asian all-girl group Blush and more!
