What our members say
I have been going to Fruits in Suits 1996 and loved every one/moment. Fruits has been very good to me. I decided some years ago to give back my thanks to the SGLBA and Fruits by becoming a Board Member, which lasted 6 years and included a stint as President.
Fruits (like most things) is what you make of it and I’m sure the current and future participants will continue to embrace it as it evolves in the future.
Bronwyn keeps here muse and inspiration close to her chest, but she reveals that the SGLBA’s Fruits in Suits became her market research lab. I talked with a lot of boys (and a few girls too) about what they would like to wear, finding the balance between elegance and masculinity.
After a few trials and errors, I am very pleased with my first male collection, The Carabez Hombre Ruiz collection that features a natural pearl on a coiled neoprene wrap.
