Innovative ideas dominate SFW

Mar '08
Seoul Fashion Week (SFW), one of the most sought after event in Korea, offered a perfect runway to domestic designers for showcasing their caliber, to come at par with renowned international designers.

The Fall/Winter 2008, saw some amazing creations for men, flaunted by models on the ramp. Designers experimented not only with fabrics ranging from wool, silk, leather to knits but also with the looks of models.

Chang Kwang-hyo, who kicked off the fashion week with his 'Caruso' collection, had a retro touch in the garments with twisted vest, teamed up with jackets and trousers.

Collection of black suits by Son Sung-keun, gained a lot of attention and appreciation from the viewers for the innovative presentation.

The famous rock icons David Bowie and Rod Stewart were the source of inspiration for Han Seung-soo, for his collection of printed shirts, metal studded leather pants and jackets.

Military look was created by Lee Young-jun, who brought in fur-trimmed leather jackets and chic parkas for men.

Mix and match of wool and leather were observed in Song Zio's designs. His delicate detailing on black, gray and khaki had hints of orange and green to highlight the cuts of garments.

The entire men's wear collection had dominance of deep brown, black, yellow and grey hues. Originality was the key word for all the designers who made the most from this event and expect to bring fame for Korean fashion.
