THE N FACTOR
N stands for NEON and Mai is one of those few men who love to do a rerun on the color wheel. As a fashion designer, this a a comfort alley for Mai to express his passion for clothes and colours and he has no doubt successfully achieved that thereby carving a niche for himself. Apart from the bright coloured jackets, shirts or pants which he comfortably pulls of with class, Mai wasn’t afraid to make another fashion statement by wearing coloured shoes as well which is now a must have staple in a man’s wardrobe.
