For our last day we went to the Australian Embassy to do a podcast about our time in Seoul and the differences between the Australian and South Korean fashion industries.
The man pictured in the center is Mr Ravi Kewalram who hosted us at his house on the first day of the program and then on the last day interviewed us on the podcast, our interview isn't up yet but you can see the most recent podcasts by clicking here.
The beautiful view of Seoul I had at the Lotte City Hotel
Day 3 began with going to Kate of Katelogy's studio and showroom in the Gangnam-gu area. Kate's jewellery is so beautiful and striking, the perfect statement pieces. I especially love the matte components she cleverly mixes with large sparkly and shiny jewels.
It was great to sit down in Kate's studio and hear about her label and her process of designing.
Day 2 started with going to Eeunhee's studio and showroom, EcommaE. It was great to sit down and hear more from her about her label.
Eeunhee and I decided on the Monday that we wanted to work together on a collaboration, can you tell I was a little excited to see her studio?!
Reflecting on one of the most intense, inspiring and exciting weeks of my life!!
We started off going to Seoul National University first thing Monday morning. We got to meet Professor Ha and the 3 Korean designers, Se Hyung of AJOBYAJO, Eeunhee of EcommaE and Kate of Katelogy. Loved seeing the presentations of the 3 labels.
