Thursday was my first real day at Seoul Fashion Week, which is when I quickly learned that putting in a full-time effort being “on” and present there after being “on” and present at my full-time job at school is actually kind of tough. But I put my game face on, put my outfit on, and trudged out into the heavily polluted day to take on Seoul Fashion Week.
Ul:kin was very in tune with what a lot of Koreans like in their street wear, and the looks themselves were very present.
A. Bell produced some beautiful outerwear pieces this season. From a gorgeous long leather coat to more classic trenches, A. Bell was a pleasant surprise for me that day!
The gallery for Minjukim was held in a “hidden” coffee shop near the Euljiro 3-ga subway station, a 5-minute taxi ride away from the main SFW events. I was met with a marriage of the midi-type skirts associated with ajummas (that I’ve always wanted because they looked cool) and intricate stitching courtesy of the designer herself. However, this collection was far from old, the color palette and stitching injecting youth into basic Korean silhouettes. I was so glad to have the time to stop by this event!

Outer wear, outer wear, and more outer wear! There’s not much for me to say other than this had to be one of my favorite collections of the entire week. Each trench had a twist to it, whether the twist was an elongated sleeve, a big fur collar, or a vertical zipper down another sleeve. There were several looks that I wanted to rip off the models, but my favorite was the deceiving simple-looking camel trench (which I featured as a Pinterest graphic). I can’t wait to see more collections like this in the future and in person!
As Metrocity is always one of the most anticipated shows every season, I was excited to see what the fuss was about. The hype was in the atmosphere: the Dream Like Dream concept was definitely like a dream, featuring clouds and otherworldly recitations of literature I couldn’t recognize. The clothes themselves were eclectic, youthful, and fun. However, Rosie Huntington Whitely, the face of Metrocity, almost stole the show with her appearance on the front row.
Here are some pretty graphics for Pinterest!
