Benson Chen @ The Twelve

By 20:59 , , ,

If there's one thing that most women have in common is their undying fetish for shoes. I have a mate who has over 130 pairs and counting, she plans to open a shoe museum one day. Where as I am slowly building my collection. Very slowly. So when MIFA Malaysia included Benson Chen in the line up of The Twelve, I was intrigued. Here's a name I haven't heard off before and yet the shoes are beautiful!

The Masquerade Madness themed party by MIFA Malaysia yesterday was to unveil Benson's Summer Shoes Collection 2011. Guests dressed to impressed with gorgeous masks that reflect their personality. Some were outlandish but really made a statement.

Yes, I have a thing for tulle skirts at the moment.. :)

Now this 19 year old is a protege of non other than the man himself, Jimmy Choo! I know right, how amazing is that. Benson designed his first shoe at the tender age of 17 by accident! He has won several awards since then - "The Most Creative Design" in the Malaysia Footwear Competition 2010 as well as the second runner up for the category of "Ladies Boots Design" in the International Footwear Competition 2010. Fueled by talent and passion, Benson is just getting started as his cult following continues to grow!

I personally like this pair.. its gotta to be the studs!

I thought the collection was young and fresh with a vibrant choice of colours. Lurv the use of prints, Swarovski crystals and studs. Lurv studs!! With names like Rhea and Daria, you can find pumps, peep toes, sling backs, that strappy pair and the much lurved ballet flats, all blinged up and ready to make you look like a star. Though Benson personally feels a woman looks best in no less than 5 inch heels!! A small sacrifice to be made for a walking indulgence!

The Showcase
I would have expected female models, but this was a wonderful change! Hawtt male models went around showcasing the shoes. I wasn't sure which one to look at, the shoes or the guys! Lol!

Benson Chen shoes range from RM120 - RM300. Drop by The Twelve @ Fahrenheit 88 to check out the rest of his collection and since you're there pick your fave and try it on. You better get them before Benson goes international, by then the price would be beyond our reach. *winks*
