Before leaving Seoul, I made sure to check out the latest fashion exhibition by Louis Vuitton. The exhibition called, Volez, Vougez, Voyagez was held at the amazing Dongdaemun Design Plaza. Travel and fashion are 2 things I absolutely love. So Volez, Vougez, Voyagez was the perfect exhibition that combined these 2 popular lifestyle trends.
I finally did the Korean hanbok experience! I put it on my Korean list to-do when I arrived. When I first came to Korea it wasn’t really a major attraction nor were there many places advertising this service, but over the last 3 years it has become a popular activity with tourists. I personally thought it was a great idea and opportunity to experience a new fun side of Korean tradition. So one Summer afternoon in June, I headed out to Jongno 2-ga to rent a hanbok.
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.
I saw adverts for this exhibition all over my social media 2 months ago. The Mademoiselle Prive promotions combined cool character animations of Coco Chanel and a look through her design process. The process of how Coco Chanel came to build her brand and how the current Chanel still uses her history to define the brand today, is what keeps the brand moving forward. The Mademoiselle Prive exhibition has come to Seoul, and is being showcased at the D-Museum. I went to check it out over the weekend.
The Leeum Museum has been on on my museum list for a while. Before, me and my friend were always too busy to visit and then I left Korea.. Now, that I had returned the opportunity to finally visit the museum was a must. So on a rainy public holiday, these two art lovers set out to fulfil our museum goal.
In my first post on the Seoul Lantern Festival, I referred to the one that takes place in late Autumn along the river. There is in fact two. This lantern festival is a month long and is in relation to Buddha’s birthday on 5 May.
I was invited by a wonderful new travelling friend to join in on the Spring Lotus Festival that took place on the weekend before Buddha’s birthday.
Hongdae is one of Seoul’s busiest and most popular nightlife and entertainment areas. It also has had a large tourist attraction over the last ten years and many love it’s bohemian and youthful vibe. One beautiful Spring Sunday, I decided to take my camera and take some pictures of this vibrant area in Seoul.
In continuing with my obsession with cherry blossom season, I decided to go check out the Spring Flower Festival in Yeouido. Yeouido is an area located in the bustling city of Seoul, South Korea. It’s also an island! For all the years I had been living here I didn’t even know. However the -do part should have given it away as it mean Island in Korean.
Spring time in Asia does not last to long, and it’s best time is only between 2 or 3 weeks long. This is when the cherry blossoms bloom. I’m obsessed with these flowers, and make an effort to catch them in new places and countries when I have the opportunity.
