kimseoryong homme ss11
Last Friday Arirang TV filmed an interview about my blog and followed me around to see what a 'normal blogging day' was like for me. Fortunately that same day there was a runway presentation by Korean designer Seoryong Kim who would be debuting his Kimseoryong Homme SS11 collection at the Horim Art Center.
The interview is for a segment Arirang is doing called 'Today's Blog'. Click on this link to see more examples of past interviews on Seoul bloggers: http://www.arirang.co.kr/TV2/Today_Blog.asp?sys_lang=Eng. My friend Paula's inteview about her blog called 'Noonablog' should be on there soon as well.
The filming was a little awkward - I'm not amazing in front of a camera. If you ask a specific question, sure I can answer that, but when the producer said something broad like 'men's fashion - talk' I sort of drew a blank. ha. Hopefully the editing makes me look semi-intelligent. The segment will air over Christmas so as soon as I get my hands on a copy I'll post it here.
I got to spend the afternoon watching the rehearsals and hanging out backstage taking pics & interviewing the other models, most of whom I had walked in shows with during Seoul Collection. Then I got a front row seat to view the very neutral colored collection. I was right at a corner so my position was a little awkward for taking quality runway pics, but there are a few interestingly blurred action shots. The show was classic Kimseoryong - broad shouldered suits with wide lapeled jackets and very wide-legged, flowing trousers with a few pinstriped looks thrown in as well. The hits of sky blue & coral were great and I loved the almost transparent tee's and the animal print loafers.
