03 May Mr. Brian See
Brian See is a celebrated blogger turned model who’s got a knack for styling with androgynous pieces infused with clean-cut masculine silhouettes. His followers will attest that his wardrobe is nothing short of being funky, stylish and dapper. His lanky posture matched with his ever-changing hair colour makes him a natural magnet for fashion enthusiasts in Klang Valley. In this segment of Street Icon, we invited Brian See for a fun OOTD shoot with FABSPY where he picked out his favourite pieces and styled three looks for us. Have a look at the awesomeness that is Brian See, our streetstyle maestro of the week.
Tell us about the looks you picked.
Going for earthy tones; casual and effortless. Oversize top that is very comfortable matched with a black loose cape to enhance the fluidity of the whole outfit.

Black Cape by KOZO
Jumpsuits in general, create an illusion of lengthened height and instead of the usual boring one-piece style, I matched a printed streetwear T-shirt inside and tied the sleeves around my waist to give it a more rugged look.

You’re a blogger turned model, what’s that like for you?
I have always wanted to be a model since high school but I did not know where and how to start at that age. So I started to blog when I was 17, and focused more on fashion and style when I was in college. Since then I was known as a blogger to the public eye. Being a blogger for the past few years actually did help me to meet more people in the fashion industry; to be more confident in front of the camera and also have a better understanding about the fashion world. I actually didn’t give up on my dream of becoming a model, so I guess being a blogger turned model just gave me more opportunity to be in front of the camera now and hopefully more collaborations in the future.
Describe your personal style.
Style is very subjective and when it comes to personal style, I won’t define myself towards one specific style because I don’t want to constrain myself from exploring something new. I consider myself very versatile and adventurous when it comes to styling because I hope to inspire my followers with different styles everyday.
How was your first modelling gig?
I actually only started to focus more on modeling recently, but I did go to Taiwan for a modeling competition last year and did my first runway show there. The experience was very memorable because I finally got to experience the chaos of being backstage in a fashion show.
What are your thoughts about shopping for women’s clothes?
I think that many clothes are designed unisex now and as long as I feel comfortable and I look good, why not?
