Seoul Fashion Week 2015
The Hera Seoul Fashion Week, hosted by the Seoul Metropolitan Government and organized by the Seoul Design Foundation, is a biannual event held in March and October. With the goal of becoming one of the most prominent fashion weeks in the world, Seoul Fashion Week has been garnering attention for its eye-catching designs.
Its showcases are divided into two main sections — Seoul Collection and Generation Next. First created in 2000, Seoul Collection presents the work of Korea’s top designers, making it the most distinguished collection in the domestic fashion industry. Generation Next is devoted to fostering relatively new, up-and-coming independent brands and designers.
Although many attend Seoul Fashion Week to see the newest designs in high fashion, the event is also great for people-watching. Attendees are known to sport colorful, chic, arresting, and even downright kooky ensembles. So, who knows? Your next Spring/Summer fashion inspiration might not come from the runway.
