Seoul Fashion Week-Day 1 a visit to Project Mint

Steve J, L'Official's Patrick  Cabass and Yoni B lobby of the Imperial Palace Hotel, Seoul

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I could not imagine coming to Seoul and not seeing designers Steve J and Yoni P. They were in the lobby waiting for me when I arrived with L'Official's Patrick Cabass. I dropped off my bags and went with them to a new shop, Project Mint.
