i’ve been through 2 years of national service. in these 2 years, there was alot of tears, sweat, vulgarities and blood.
but, one of my fondest memory was when me and my friend Alfri (who was a fashion graduate) created an army inspired fashion show for our company as part of recruits’ night. the entire collection was made entirely with military objects from groundsheets, helmets, mosquito nets, blankets, boots and everything you could possibly think of.
and we manage to convince the platoon to be a fashion model for the day wearing dresses and frocks.
this photoshoot from GQ style China, transported me back to time allowing me to have a moment of silence as i look down at my rather untoned belly after finishing the military term.
