'2019 F/W 서울패션위크, 한국의 신생 디자이너들 조명 Once again it\'s time for Seoul Fashion Week at Dongdaemun Design Plaza The event brings together overseas movers and shakers of the industry as well as up and coming local designers. Lee Min-sun provides a glimpse of what to expect. It\'s the biggest week of the year in Seoul for fashion. Seoul Fashion Week is in its 20th year. Designers, buyers and reporters from all over the world are here to see the trends in store for next fall and winter. Ninety-five collections in total... from 33 Korean designer brands. \"This year\'s Seoul Fashion Week focuses on introducing emerging designers from Korea and giving them the chance to gain recognition from overseas.\" It opened by introducing ten designers selected for their potential to compete globally. These designers were given the chance to present their works to not only overseas buyers and but also to the public for purchase. \"I tried to question the use of animal material,... so I only used artificial materials for the show like fake fur and eco leather. I also tried to emphasize a Korean or Asian foundation in the design such as in the volume or the material.\" \"Seoul itself you have a very good asset which is you have very good, creative and potential designers in Seoul. You also have a very good asset in terms of everyone knows about Korean drama. So I think it\'s a very good way to actually bring out attention to the world.\" Seoul Fashion Week runs until this Sunday, March 24... at Dongdaemun Design Plaza. Lee Min-sun, Arirang News.
