A friend of mine had won tickets to see the Shelby House exhibition at the Daelim Museum in Jongno, Seoul. She kindly invited me and another friend to be her guests, as we are all art lovers. So one hot, muggy and humid Sunday in Seoul, I met with my friends and went to check out the exhibit.
We are swamped with photographs of the famous and not-so-famous all dressed up in their finest, hoping to be featured on the “Street Style” pages of all the famous magazines and blogs around the world. There is practically a show before the show.Living in one of the fashion capitals of the world gained me the opportunity to see what the buzz was about surrounding the start of a fashion show!
In Paris, the streets will be blocked off just to accommodate the fashion shows, usually causing a traffic jam and making drivers take alternative routes.
In 2012, I got to see the Art and Fashion Grads exhibition in Seoul. I was invited by a student to see her sister’s final project being showcased at Hongdae’s Art Museum on the campus!
I’ve never actually went to the university, the location is popular for partying, shopping and clubbing and that’s all I had ever went to Hongdae for.
