Dear Shaded Viewers,

Taking place within the historical landmark of Gwanghuimun Gate -one of the Eight Gates in the Fortress Wall of Seoul, which protected the city throughout the reign of the Joseon Dynasty- the fashion show introduced 3 talents, namely womenswear line Eunjukoh, sportswear brand NINETEENEIGHTY and French designer Philippe Perisse. Blending performance with fashion was one the show’s highlights, including an opening concert and live drawing act. MCC Global will organize similar gatherings and events in the future, looking for innovative ways to promote independent designers, from Korea and abroad. After the show ended, guests gathered downtown to enjoys drinks, an appropriate DJ set and spectacular views of the city. Seoul is particularly vibrant and beautiful at night, even if its frantic pace never seems to calm down.
