Finally! After a month of putting it off, the time has finally come…for me to talk about my “epic” 38-hour trip to Tokyo, Japan, for my birthday and for Tokyo Fashion Week.

So I was wading through the bulk Refinery29 emails that I STILL receive when I came across one with the subject of “Comfy, breezy dresses that make mornings EASY.” Well, I love comfy, breezy dresses, so I decided to take a gander at the link. Most of the dresses were meh but I came upon this number.

And my heart pitter-pattered with love. Frayed hems? Loose pleats? Long(er) length? Not black? YES!

 

Then I glanced at the designer name. Rachel Comey.

Damn it. I had to look at the price.

$552.

I can just hear The Skincare Guru’s voice now, “You know I can make that dress, right?” followed by the rustling of old McCall’s patterns.

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.

The r.shemiste show began at 10AM, so when I arrived at 9:40 I was probably only 75% awake. I knew that I had a long day ahead of me, and while I was excited by it, I also kind of dreaded it.

The r.shemiste show woke me up, though.

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.
