Seoul Fashion Week Sees Tailoring Wave

SEOUL — During Seoul Fashion Week, the city was abuzz — and with lots more than just fashion.
As the biannual event kicked off at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza in Dongdaemun, the historical garment manufacturing and wholesale clothing district in the nation’s capital, the city also saw visits by a slew of celebrities and dignitaries. They included Bella Hadid, who came to attend the Seoul leg of Dior’s Art of Color exhibition; rapper Tyler, the Creator, who was in town for the launch of his latest Golf le Fleur and Converse capsule collaboration, and Hillary Clinton, who criticized President Trump’s aggressive stance against North Korea in a speech during the 18th World Knowledge Forum at Jangchung Arena near Dongdaemun.
But back at fashion week, the event was in a world of its own as K-pop stars, local fashion followers, press and buyers filled the trade shows, main show venue and the event’s Generation Next halls, which featured the collections of up-and-coming designers.
Local celebrities attended many events, including Hyoyeon from Girls’ Generation, Key from boy band Shinee, actress Park Si-yeon, singer Geummi from girl group Crayon Pop, and others.
