So what exactly is Korean Fashion anyway and why is there so much hype around it globally?
We’ve all seen the rise of K-pop, K-drama & K-beauty around the world and now it’s time for K-Fashion to steal the spotlight. Korean Fashion (also known as K-Fashion) is a general term used to refer to the fashion brands and designers based in South Korea. Over the last several years, Seoul Fashion Week has become one of the hottest must-attend events in the fashion industry, attracting buyers and influencers from around the world.

The roster of contemporary Korean designers continues to grow robustly each year, with a wide variety of brands. They range from the globally renown, high-end RTW brands like Low Classic, Beyond Closet & WNDERKAMMER, to the more affordable independent designers like PP, Raindrop, & Noii.
The general perception of Korean Fashion globally is largely defined by cute tops and dresses or kitschy graphic tees and sweats - like the styles you often see on K-pop celebrities & street style photos. But there is a whole other side of it that is often overlooked by the public; wardrobe essentials and trend pieces. If you dig deep into the world of K-Fashion, you’ll find some great elevated essentials that are perfect for everyday wear, at affordable prices. Korean designers are also quick at adopting trends, but thanks to the modest Korean culture, they are incorporated in a very subtle way allowing even some of the more difficult trends to be easily wearable for the ordinary woman.
Did you ever want that particular dress from that fast-fashion brand but your friend called dibs on it first so you needed to find a similar option? But none of the good ones were within your budget?
