After the Byungmun Seo show a couple of Fridays ago, my blogger friend Star (also of YouTube fame) and I decided to go out and get drinks. After asking for my recommendation, I said, “Well, the Four Seasons has a guest bartender from San Francisco tonight.”
So, Seoul Fashion Week is officially over! And, whew, was it a doozy! I walked around like a zombie for a good 2 days afterwards, but I had such a good time that I wouldn’t change a thing. Since I didn’t really get a chance to dress up last season, this ended up being a fun experience for me…
If there was one fashion show out of the five I saw that changed my perspective on the future of Korean fashion, especially in regards to its relationship to fashion in the western world, it was the Yohanix show.
On Tuesday night I went to my first show at Dongdaemun Design Plaza: that of Kiok Studios, which has bases in both New York and here in Seoul. I walked in about 15 minutes early, and the place was already a madhouse (for me: this was my first fashion show, so I didn’t know what to expect). After a few minutes of mindless wandering, I finally found my seat. No, really, I found my seat.
I’m a minimalist through and through: not only that, I’m a big fan of the colors black, grey, white, and camel (with some blue). My penchant for brighter color comes in accents, like scarves, handbags, and sometimes makeup. The Skincare Guru can’t stand that I have so many clothes in those four colors, but hey, that’s just my thing.
