For men

This year, many sports events took place, such as Summer Olympics 2012 in London, so it influenced the imagination of designers. Some designers were influenced by various things like travel, color, and moderation.

One of the famous designers Ko TaeYong presented different themes of his collection each season. This year, impressed by 'travel', he featured sailors withCreated pure city woman by Lie SangBong stylish backpacks. Also the veteran designer Lee JuYoung's military-themed collection was definitely more toned-down in relation to her past 'rebellious men' clothes, showing black and white modern, chic outfits. This sexy and chic look received attention during Seoul runways.

For women

Designers created different images of city woman. To represent that image, they took a structural and practical approach, adding color and soft details to prevent the looks of harshness or pedestrian. Most of Seoul Fashion Week's designers presented soft femininity beneath clean, simple looks for the next season.

Lie Sang Bong created fantastical images using soft colors and butterfly prints shown on trench coats and dresses. With Sheen JeHee's total yellow looks, blue and beige, she preferred a color palette consisting of bright colors. As with women’s wear last season, the summer coat was introduced as the new must-have item of the season. Keep an eye out this season for coats ranging from demure classic raincoats to military style jackets.Lee JuYoung’s collection
