 Among​ ​those​ ​to​ ​represent​ ​their​ ​countries​ ​are​ ​a​ ​group​ ​of​ ​talented​ ​designers​ ​from​ ​Korea.​ ​Their work​ ​has​ ​been​ ​seen​ ​in​ ​shows​ ​in​ ​Germany,​ ​France,​ ​China,​ ​Japan​ ​and​ ​now​ ​Vancouver​ ​Fashion Week​ ​have​ ​the​ ​honour​ ​of​ ​showcasing​ ​their​ ​works.​ ​Choi​ ​Boko,​ ​MEZIS​ ​and​ ​L​ ​by​ ​L​ ​are​ ​amoung those​ ​that​ ​will​ ​be​ ​hitting​ ​the​ ​runway​ ​with​ ​their​ ​lines​ ​for​ ​SS18.
Choi​ ​Boko,​ ​a​ ​first​ ​generation​ ​fashion​ ​designer​ ​from​ ​Korea,​ ​has​ ​created​ ​a​ ​womenswear​ ​brand known​ ​for​ ​its​ ​constructive​ ​but​ ​comfortable​ ​silhouettes​ ​combined​ ​with​ ​artistic​ ​prints​ ​and patchwork​ ​patterns. “This​ ​seasons​ ​theme​ ​is​ ​based​ ​on​ ​the​ ​contingency​ ​of​ ​Simulacrum.​ ​I​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​express​ ​the process​ ​of​ ​constructing​ ​‘another​ ​nature’​ ​in​ ​the​ ​form​ ​of​ ​a​ ​fashion​ ​object,​ ​rather​ ​than​ ​a​ ​costume that​ ​imitates​ ​nature”​ ​says​ ​designer​ ​Choi​ ​Boko​ ​about​ ​her​ ​SS18​ ​collection.
Debuting​ ​at​ ​this​ ​years​ ​event​ ​is​ ​designer​ ​Hyunmi​ ​Jang​ ​with​ ​her​ ​label​ ​MEZIS.​ ​Reining​ ​from​ ​the eastern​ ​province​ ​of​ ​Gyeongsangbuk-do,​ ​Hyunmi​ ​has​ ​established​ ​her​ ​brands​ ​MENZIS​ ​and​ ​Free Balance​ ​within​ ​the​ ​industry​ ​in​ ​shows​ ​around​ ​the​ ​globe​ ​including​ ​Germany,​ ​France​ ​and​ ​China.
VFW​ ​will​ ​be​ ​the​ ​first​ ​and​ ​highly​ ​anticipated​ ​show​ ​for​ ​the​ ​MENZIS​ ​brand​ ​for​ ​the​ ​Canadian market. Another​ ​first​ ​timer​ ​from​ ​Korea​ ​at​ ​VFW​ ​SS18​ ​is​ ​Lee​ ​Youjung​ ​presenting​ ​her​ ​brand​ ​L​ ​by​ ​L.​ ​The featured​ ​brand​ ​targets​ ​women​ ​with​ ​global​ ​senses;​ ​it​ ​expresses​ ​romance​ ​and​ ​according​ ​to​ ​the designer​ ​is​ ​created​ ​to​ ​“reflect​ ​a​ ​woman’s​ ​sensibility​ ​on​ ​a​ ​modern​ ​scale”.
For​ ​her​ ​SS18​ ​collection​ ​Lee​ ​has​ ​abandoned​ ​mass​ ​produced​ ​ready-to-wear​ ​techniques​ ​and​ ​has instead​ ​adopted​ ​the​ ​European​ ​style​ ​of​ ​small-scale​ ​luxury​ ​production​ ​to​ ​better​ ​express​ ​the romantic​ ​and​ ​feminine​ ​character​ ​of​ ​her​ ​line. Alongside​ ​these​ ​established​ ​designers​ ​there​ ​will​ ​be​ ​a​ ​host​ ​of​ ​emerging​ ​designers​ ​from​ ​Korea showcasing​ ​their​ ​collections​ ​at​ ​VFW​ ​SS18
