Beyond the tradicional tourism and technology goes Korea. Korean Fashion is from some years now trending among fashionistas. Besides the beauty sector, which they are pioneers, Korean fashion became popular and new brands are popping up within the western world and asia of course, most of all because of the K-pop culture and trends. K-pop is everything related to fashion, enteteriment or music from Korea. In Asia is a trend for years.
On my trio to Seoul, i went to visit the fashion neiborhood of Seoul, where both korean an international luxury brands are located, as the korean brand MCM, famous leather bags and backpacks.
For Fashion lovers and luxury enthusiasts, your destiny in Seoul is one. The area called Cheongdam Fashion Street. Cheongdam, is at Gangam – gu, south of han river.
To reach: Exit 1 or 2 of Apgujeong Station, Subway Line 3
2 stores called my attention in Cheongdam:
The Galleria Department Store
Address: 343 Apgujeong-ro, Apgujeong-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea
10 Corso Como
Address: 79 Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea
Beside these brands and stores, one korean sunglass brand was calling me. The Gentle Monster, is worth a visit for their Hogdae flagship store as well for their sunnies. The store is almost an art exhibition.
See you next time.
Safe travels and good shopping
