I'm slowly catching up with my friends Eric & Tiffany's Seoul based TV series 'Semipermanent', and just had to share two more episodes.  The episode above titled 'State of the Art' meets up with some more Seoul kids I know including the talented Jamie Bruno who paints murals on abandoned or soon to be torn down homes in the city, as well as Udo Lee, a curator at Platoon Kunsthalle - one of my favorite old haunts in Seoul.  Watching the episode really made me miss all the events that went on at Platoon from concerts to gallery openings and especially the Night Flea Market where I used to make bank every month selling vintage & reformed clothes!  

Episode 6 'All Dressed Up' was especially bittersweet to watch as it focused on Seoul's fashion scene. My boy James Lee McGuown spoke to Eric & Tiff behind the scenes at Seoul Fashion Week while he was getting ready for the Kimseoryong Homme show and there were so many familiar faces popping up from designers I used to know and work with to dressers I recognized and models like Won Joong Kim or Jin Wook Yoon that I used to walk in shows with.  Also very cool to see Dongdaemun fashion market again - I used to spend hours there searching through all the trimmings and fabrics and whatnot. While I might not live there again, I WILL GO BACK ONE DAY!  I can't not - it's my home away from home!  

Seoul - I miss you!

The latest issue of Surface Asia is out featuring a fashion article on the A to Z of New Asian Talent to which I contributed a few pages about up and coming Korean designers.  Writing and researching for this article really had me missing hitting up Seoul Fashion Week each season - fingers crossed I can arrange sponsorship for this April :)  

Also - don't forget the quirky cool cover story by Hasisi Park and styled by my friend Sarah Kate  - well done babygirl!

Semipermanent: The Expat Life

Yay! I'm so glad to see my friends Tiffany & Eric & Hassan doing so well in Seoul. Tiff & Eric used to live in the apartment right next door to me (I could literally reach over my balcony and knock on their window lol). I remember them talking about a TV project they were working on and being excited by the sounds of it - and now to see it come to fruition is so awesome. Love how beautifully the film is shot and how sincere the storytelling is, reminding me so much of what I miss about being an expat in Korea. Well done guys - can't wait to see the next episode!

This is from a feature story I styled for issue 7 of 1883 Magazine with soon-to-be-big actress Alice Englert.  You can see her onscreen in Ginger & Rosa opposite Elle Fanning or in the soon released flick Beautiful Creatures which is sure to be a huge hit.  She was so chill and had an easy going, sweet & sincere vibe about her so it made for a lovely afternoon.  Check our her full interview in 1883's 'Timeless Issue' in stores now.
