On the second day of our visit to Seoul, we find ourselves wishing for more time. This was a layover trip and the itinerary filled with just some historic sites in Dongdaemun and shows in the evening at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza. You cannot gauge the size of Seoul just by looking at the maps you need at least a week to enjoy what Seoul has to give but we promised ourselves to enjoy it. After making our way back to DDP, the crowd of fashionistas attending the Seoul fashion week were so lively, and friendly so we took some snap shots of the street fashion.

After a brief stop shooting street fashion, Akin made his way backstage. Preshow, that is where all the action takes place. The delicate music chairs that occurs while hair and makeup is applied, we get to see the make up artists and hair stylists work their craft creating the final look for the show. The preparations were taking place for LOW CLASSIC – 로우클래식 by designer Lee Myung Sin 이명신.

The look was a slick pull back hair styled with undulating waves of hair strands framing the face giving a wet look reminiscent of wet curls.

LOW CLASSIC is a young brand focusing on practical design and pursuing simple but not too simple natural beauty. The feel to the collection was contemporary with the complementary hairstyle and the natural beauty make up by team AMOS using HERA products, the main sponsor for Seoul fashion week.

While Akin was shooting Metrocity backstage, I took the time to explore some of the other art installations around the DDP and surrounding area.

A night view of DDP in Seoul

With just one hour to spare, I walked around the DDP and took some snaps of the structures and the night scene. Little did I know, those were the last images I would take until my trip back home.

Prior to entering the line for queue, one person bumped into me with the force of a small collision making my cellphone to get ejected from my grip. My phone survived but the glass screen was shatter beyond usage and would need to be repaired. Moments of anger, frustration, despair and finally acceptance to the fact that my new phone will need to be serviced asap. Well, as they say in the show business, ‘the show must go on’, so I went to my seat and enjoyed the last show for the season.

In the meantime, the makeup application and hairstyling for METROCITY show seen over by the team of experts from PINETREE. METROCITY the brand by designer Jeehae Yang and filled with youthful glam reminds us of a happy story. The models walked the runway wearing smiles and acting as the protagonists of a feel good drama series. The urban spirit is alive and it’s wild. The clothes were a clear representation of a youthful generation open to the glam and the embrace the accessorizing culture.

After the show, we only wished we had more time. The time went by so fast and the city of Seoul was vibrant but we had to pack our suitcases and get back home. Till next time, we shall return to Korea because we felt a great connection with the city and the people of Seoul.
