Star Creation 2011: Neo Ben Jie Benjamin

20-year-old Singaporean, Neo Ben Jie Benjamin, was the youngest finalist at this year’s Star Creation competition. A student at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Benjamin caught the judges’ eye with his collection Blooming Power. He based his designs on the lotus flower, to which he compares Asia – it is something humble that has grown out of the mud and blossomed into a body of power and beauty. Now, he says, is Asia’s time. What he hopes will come through in his collection is structure,vibrancy, volume, colour and a sense of the whimsical. The layered look, while somewhat conservative, is modern.
