HEART AND SEOUL: Les Arts Décoratifs on Wednesday night hosted an exhibit called “Seoul’s 10 Soul,” which showcased pieces by 10 fashion designers from the South Korean capital. It’s an international venture created by Seoul Metropolitan Government to heighten awareness of Korea’s fashion brands. In the Paris stint, the five women’s wear designers, including Jaehwan Lee, Jardin de Chouette, Kaal E.Suktae, Leyii and Steve J and Yoni P, will exhibit at Paris’ Tranoi tradeshow in October. The five men’s wear designers — Jehee Sheen, Alani, Beyond Closet, General Idea and Groundwave — already took part in the June Tranoi session. By the end of 2011, a sole brand will be chosen to receive more financial benefits and grow its international reach for one year.
