Korean fashion trends are growing, making Seoul the biggest fashion capital in Asia and even the world. South Korean fashion has maintained an influence of trends to the rest of the world which is known to reflect the sense of individuality. Korean fashion is expressed all over the world (the spread of appreciation for South Korean culture) which affected the fashion world. Since the beginning of 2021, Korean fashion brands are gaining recognition as Korean pop characters, and other celebrities are showing appearances with them in the biggest fashion capitals such as New York City and Paris. But why is Korean fashion popular?
Is it the colored fabric or vibrant prints? I believe it is a mixture of both and how it’s represented through the great k-pop idols. Appearances were made in the popular Shunichell long skirts, streetwear, blazers and classic tailoring, cargo pants, and chunky sneakers.
