Attending Seoul Fashion Week is not so much glamorous as it is spellbindingly entertaining. There is some amazing talent coming out of Seoul right now that is worth learning about, and I highly recommend heading to high-end select shops like 10 corso como, to check out some of the top Korean designers under one roof, or to the first floor of the Dongdaemun Doota building to see who is up and coming.

Here are some shots capturing the pandemonium behind the scenes and outside of the shows.
