Korean Fashion

From sewing needle and sewing thread to creation and art

At first sight you would think that you don’t need to be a fashion college graduate or have any fashion design experience to know how to dress, taking in consideration that the internet is full of useful advice. Following the same idea, some might think it’s not very hard to become a fashion designer. But a true designer can make a difference between wearing something and wearing some “IT”. A classy design that catches the eye not through extravagance, but through art combined with talent.

The last mentioned are the attributes that form the base for Cristina Ducu’s idea of giving birth to the clothing fashion design project-Annie Mozel Design.The concept that has and will have her signature are revealed even from the beginning through the cherry blossoms, symbol of rebirth in South Korea, and that are concretely transposed into her designs.

Two very interesting events this weekend, at both ends of the country!^^

Shin Min-a Shows Us How to Pose Like a Woman


Yeah, I eat sitting on my kitchen bench all the time too.

Korean Sociological Image #55: School Uniform Advertisements


Has anyone been paying close attention to teenage girls’ legs recently?

If so, then please answer a question for me, as they’re the darnedest things to find once you actually have a legitimate reason to look.
