New York, October 12, 2012 – Last night, The Korean Fashion Association celebrated K-Fashion Sensation at The Dream Downtown. The event was hosted and styled by world-renowned stylist, Patricia Field. This season’s K-Fashion Sensation presented two Korean brands, Morine Comte Marant and Buckaroo Jeans to New York buyers and press for the first time.
We were invited to hang out with some crazy partygoers including Patricia Field, Robert Verdi, Tom Silverman, Richie Rich, Nary Manivong, The Blonds and more. Guests enjoyed K-Pop music by KILL THE DJ, Korean hors d’oeuvres, and Korean Soju cocktails. Charli, a famed K-Tech robot, pumped up the crowd with the ever-popular “Gangnam Style” dance.
Patricia Field’s involvement in K-Fashion Sensation stems from her recent visit to Seoul in June. Invited by the Korean Government, Field visited the stores of the two brands, Buckaroo and Morine Comte Marant, and chose them to showcase in New York. The presentation themed, “Good Girls Love Bad Boys” contrasted Morine Comte Marant’s flirty, feminine style against Buckaroo Jean’s tough, masculine image.
We couldn’t make it out to the event, but a big thanks to our friends at Factory for hooking us up with the video and photo footage. Looks like we missed a good one. For more photos, please visit the It’s All Style To Me Facebook Page.
