SEOUL — The recent Seoul Collection Week showcased the Korean fashion industry, which has been striving to promote itself in international markets and present its clothes to a more global audience.
The event, featuring 48 Korean designers, was a group effort by three fashion associations; the national and Seoul city governments, and corporate sponsors such as Mercedes-Benz, LG Home Shopping and Lotte Department Store. It was the first time the designers had shown in a unified fashion-week presentation, and garnered $167,000 from the city to help promote it.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
