K-pop and Korean dramas have played a large role in bringing international attention to their fashion. Seoul fashion week, today commands the same international recognition and respect as Tokyo, New York, or Paris fashion week. To bring further up to speed, in the present article, we are going to bring to you the top 5 clothing brands from Korea.
8Seconds is Korea’s answer to brands like Zara. At a time when other Asian brands were making a name for themselves for being affordable yet good in quality, Cheil Industries decided that it was too good an opportunity to pass up.
With the help of their deep pockets, they launched 8Seconds on an aggressive footing. Even today, 8Seconds debuts new and fresh collection every week. In the face of cut-throat competition, it is not easy to keep innovating constantly. Yet, the brand has lived up to expectations by providing quality merchandise at surprisingly affordable prices.
Just because they debut a fresh collection every week, you should not underestimate the quality of this brand. 8Seconds is one of those few Asian brands that have managed to capture the market in American territories. Tibaeg
Korean fashion is all about the art of expression. It emphasizes providing comfort without trying too hard to stand out. In other words, it prefers practicality over finesse. Tibaeg is one such brand that embodies this very concept.
The name of the brand comes from the word “teabag”. With strong prints and a comfortable fitting, Tibaeg is elegant and smooth. Riding on the back of its quality stitching and well-thought design patterns, the brand has collaborated with many international bigwigs, like Disney and Louis Quatorze to name a few.
They, the brand, design for women and are one of the most sought after names in the local market. Investing their revenue in growth prospects, they plan to have a permanent presence in multiple US states soon. The Studio K
The whole Korean industry has shot to fame because they are so radically different from what we are used to seeing on the stage. The Studio K follows the same principle to differentiate itself from the competition that it is trying to beat.
While all other brands on this list are trying to attain the best possible fitting and personalization for their clientele, The Studio K prides itself on technology. The main attraction behind this brand is not the finely printed clothes that it sells but rather the technology and investment that has gone into it. Not designing exclusively for men or women, complementing the human form seems to be its main agenda.
From casual dresses to streetwear, the main theme is fluidity. The Studio K stands apart from its competitors because of its uniqueness. Value for money is just an added benefit! Hyein Seo
A young designer who was still in high school when she was invited to the prestigious New York Fashion Week to present her collection, Hyein Sao is, quite simply, one of the most loved designer brands, devoting ample amount of time to the inspiration behind her creations, she embodies the spirit of the Korean youth.
The brand has a lot of credibility on the streets of Seoul. Bright colors with an overdose of white, while presenting oversized silhouettes that have still managed to keep their femininity, you have a perfect Hyein Sao collection ready to be worn. Style Nanda
No mention of Korean Fashion will ever be complete without the mention of Style Nanda, the most popular Korean fashion brand. Foreign enthusiasts who have just been introduced to the Korean fashion industry make a beeline for its stores.
Such was its impact on the international stage that L’Oreal decided to buy a stake in Style Nanda, thus further strengthening their plans for a more comprehensive international presence. Although being started in 2004, the brand is still young but Kim So-hee has got great plans for the future of the company.
