[VFW APPROVED QUOTE]
“Mixing emerging and established designers from across the world has been our recipe for success for over 17 years. VFW is fortunate to be working with remarkable talent and grow alongside maturing designers. We are grateful that we as an organization can, and have acted as a stepping stone in some of their careers.” says Jamal Abdourahman, producer and founder of Vancouver Fashion Week.
We want to share our life with you through our clothes. We always worry about what kind of story we can put on our clothes. As a result, we chose Pungmul Nori as the subject of the SS18, and we reconstructed this story with our kitch style. We changed the color of Korea into pastel tones and put cute illustrations everywhere. Also, we tried to express special shapes that could be found in Pungmul Nori. We hope someone to ask you in SETSETSET. “What is this?” Then, you would say like this. “It is the culture of Korea.”
