K-Pop Pandemonium In The Front Row
We’ve dished on the designers and duds comprising Seoul Fashion Week, but what about the front row scene? Some shows, like pushBUTTON, lured in photog-swarmed sets of actress/singer/entertainer types, but the most hysteria by far got generated by K-Pop megastars. Think Kanye in a NYFW front row. At Kye, we caught a paparazzi-jostled moment backstage post-show with CL of K-Pop group 2NE1 after she caused perhaps the biggest tizzy in the front row we witnessed all week.
People positively freaked out over your front row presence. What brought you to this specific show?
I’ve been very good friends with Kye since…I can’t even remember how long. That’s how good of friends we are. I love her.
Where do you wear Kye?
It’s good on stage, and good on normal days. Everywhere!
Do you have a packed Seoul Fashion Week sched?
No. This is the only show I come to in Korea.
Quite the testament to Kye’s talents! Do you have any U.S. designer pals?
Jeremy Scott. I’ve known him since I started [K-Pop group] 2NE1. I met him in Korea at a photoshoot, and we’ve been best friends since then!
