Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2015: Beyond Closet

SFW S/S 2015: Beyond Closet

The toughest collection to write about is one that is neither really bad or excellent. It’s those that fall somewhere between the dichotomy but so lukewarm that they basically elicit no emotions. Such tend to be ones that are designed by people who are more business-minded than art or design-driven. Despite having reached the mega popular…

SFW S/S 2015: KAAL E.SUKTAE

What distinguishes humans from animals is that we are able to think critically and analytically.

These are just a few of Munsoo Kwon’s specialties, who has quickly risen to a celebrity designer status in a few years he’s…
