Fashion Kode 2013

7

So dreams do come true after all. I had always wished for a fashion trade show in Korea possibly in a size similar to the ones held actively overseas ie Project Las Vegas, Coterie New York, Milan, etc. because seriously, Korea has so much to offer yet there weren’t enough outlets or channels to showcase…

Out and About: Myeong-dong

2

While Myeongdong isn’t my usual hangout spot, I don’t mind it once in a while for shopping, food, and just all around fun. If anything, the energy is incredible there. The reason why I don’t frequent the area isn’t because it’s any less fun or exciting than Hongdae or Garosugil (if you like shopping, this…

Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival

19

Had the pleasure of shooting the opening ceremony of PIFAN (Puchon International Film Festival, one of the largest film festivals in Korea) before leaving Seoul which was filled with celebrities, reporters, press, and screaming fan girls, lots of them. Oh, and yes, the heat… oh wow, didn’t realize how much work it is to stand…

Dear Seoul: Zara Flagship Opening Party

It’s like the flu that’s extremely contagious. Any “hot” international brand will land in Seoul and as soon as it’s “hotness” is certified by the few, it will immediately take off- and I mean take off. As much as “Korean Fashion” seems to have gained serious popularity around the globe, Koreans will always have a…

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2013: Welcome Reception Party at W

W14

Following Lie Sang Bong’s show last Wednesday, a welcome party was held at W Seoul Walkerhill. Wasn’t actually planning on going until later but that was also only because it’s near where I live. Not expecting much, we walked in, on a hunt for food… yes, food, because after an entire day spent at the…

Style Nanda

sn10

was at Style Nanda‘s flagship store opening party Friday night which is considered quite a feat in the industry because there has never been another online shop that’s gone offline… or let me rephrase that- there has never been one to build an entire building from scratch. As popular as online shops are in Korea, there…

FNO Seoul

fno9

Fashion’s Night Out is so much more fun when you can actually do boutique-hopping without having to worry about your car. I spent the last two FNOs in Los Angeles and neither quite met my expectations. For those unfamiliar, FNO is a global fashion event sponsored by Vogue which began in 2009 in an attempt…

Silhouette Launching Show in Itaewon

ohinhye

Justin and I headed to Itaewon Friday night to attend an eyewear launching party/ fashion show. Well, we weren’t attending as guests but to help out so we promptly reported to our respective areas of responsibility: I went straight to the back stage and Justin facing the stage for photos. Little did I know, I…
