Concept Korea Fall 2014

Article by Yinsana Mok

This year, Concept Korea started the fashion show with a beautiful performance. It was an artful and a creative dance. There were five performers; they came all the way from Korea just to perform in this fashion show. The performance in particular, shows a unique part of the show compared with the other ones.

In this year, four fashion designers were part of the Fall/Winter Collection 2014. The first designer was Kaal E. Suktae. This time, there were 12 looks from all of the designers in Concept Korea. Most of the looks from Kaal E. Suktae were combined with the colors black and white. The rest of the colors were blue, and burgundy. This designer wants to inspire us with the old fashion style from the 1990’s. This collection translates as modern and new structural silhouettes. Some models were really outstanding, because of the old fashioned black-hats that they wore in the show. Also, most of the models wore tight leggings to match well with their looks. In addition to the interview we had from the designer, he mentioned that he was also inspired by the 1990’s tableware, silverware, etc.

The second designer was Choiboko. He believes that “fashion does not dress the body, but dress the soul.” This collection reflects modern and globalized style. Choiboko was inspired by everyday life like nature, people, and society. There were also 12 looks for this collection.

The next designer was Ko Tae Yong, representing Beyond Closet. This men’s collection was to present classical looks and items. However, they propose distinctive new looks every season. Beyond Closet uses conceptual graphics and details, and mix-matched classic colors. Also, some looks reflected an army-style, such as a camouflage-print suit and military-inspired outerwear. There were a total of 12 looks.

The last designer in this year’s  fashion show was Park Youn Soo, representing the brand Big Park. He showed an adventurous life style brand. He was inspired by “the boys and girls dressed in their individual way around global neighborhoods.” This year, the collection featured some signature items, such as a draped leather jacket. In most of the looks he used black, white, cream, red and grey. As the designer quoted, he was inspired by “a romantic moment between two loved ones over dinner.” Overall, the collection worked to show simplicity.
