A peak at Seoul Fashion Week S/S 2018

Being the hub of best beauty products, South Korea has always a lot to offer to the fashion ridden global community. This year too, they had wide ranges of traditional hanbok wears to the western style suiting. Having a bit of controversy portrayed on stage and raising a voice in favor of campaigns like #MeToo, the whole fashion week was like an exciting roller coaster ride.

Best Trends At Seoul Fashion Week S/S 2018

Here are some of the best highlights of the week,

Ungendered Clothing

South Korea is considered quite a conservative country relating to sexuality and gender equality, however with the new times, the culture is evolving along with the people’s view.

Designer Jo Dong Wook (Douzoh) having male models walk in pleated skirts to Munn’s face covered models wearing shimmery menswear, the gender distinctions were blurred in the clothing style.

Cry For Peace

Solid Homme delved a bit into politics on stage. While celebrating their 30th anniversary, Woo Young Mi presented his intriguing point of view on war and peace -in reference to the Vietnam war- with the help of his creative craftsmanship.

Labels like Munn and Moho also showed their artistic interpretation of mandatory 2-year military service, which has always been a matter of dismay for younger men.

Hanboks- The Traditional Wear

Hanbok is one of the most gorgeous eastern wears having a cropped jacket and long volume skirt, usually worn on functions and formal events of Chuseok.

Kim Young Jin showcased an absolutely flawless collection of the traditional wear this year, in all the brightest and beautiful pastel shades.

Fashion Weaved Into Nature

Labels like Ti:Baeg and A.Bell took their fashion shows to next level by incorporating themes and colors of nature in it. With the help of the backdrop of falling leaves to gracefully dancing maidens to white and navy hinting at raindrops to beige showing earthly colors, nature was woven deep into every thread.
