Ooh Hallyu!

Style Sharing is a fashions exhibition exploring the symbiotic relationship between Korean and British styles. Showcasing the work of Korean designers inspired by British life, it highlights the differences between classic ‘Britishness’ and what is known as ‘Hallyu’ a Korean term for South Korean culture’s popularity in the West.

I went along to the exhibition launch last night at the Korean Cultural Society. Curated by my dear friend and creative talent, Tory Turk, it was a very stylish affair. She commissioned British filmmaker Eion Glaister to produce film shorts to accompany each designer’s individual exhibits. Graduates from London College of Fashion and Central Saint Martins provided the garments. Style Sharing is on until 4th March – make sure you catch it!
