Fashion is Feeling

I was on the subway heading home Friday night when I saw these ads on the subway door.

I just thought it was interesting and somewhat clever. It's the slogan for the doota! fashion mall in Dongdaemun market that caught my eye "Fashion is Feeling."

I think that is it. It's how it makes you feel whether direct, 'cause you're looking good, or indirect, because people draw certain conclusions about you based on how you're dressed. But it really ultimately is how wearing whatever it is makes you feel.

Since Seoul's fashion week, Seoul Collection, is next week and I'll be there, I figure why not start with a little fashion philosophy.

  1. That's so exciting. I'll be sure to check it out. I'm utterly burned out. What you'll find is that once you go to one, you'll get invites for many others. Last night I had invites for 3, but I was so tired, I just stayed home.

  2. Hee!

    I'm just excited to be going to one. Of course, now it's 1am on Sunday and I've got an article due later today. So what I need to do is stop blogging and sit down and write this interview. I usually don't wait this late, but I've been more distracted than not.

    We'll see what ends up here, what ends up in the Korea Herald and what ends up on other sites ;)


Hey there! Thanks for visiting my blog. It's my first blog, and I'm glad folks are still stopping by even though I'm no longer living in South Korea. Feel free to comment.
