Stars Shine at Seoul Collection

The Seoul Collection on Sunday ended its 11-day agenda. Designers and brands showcased their lines of clothing, which they hope will mesmerize people this fall and winter.

Artistic garments dazzled in 62 shows at SETEC in southern Seoul, forecasting romantic retro will continue to rein strong yet another season.

In female attire, as seen in the world's top collections in Paris, New York and Milan over a month ago, designers took motifs from various eras, including the Victorian era, the 1950s and the 1980s, to create glamorous retro looks on the catwalks with a seasoning of minimalism.

Reinterpretation of retro was diversified, ranging from the dominant mannish and chic streamlined looks to girly puffed-up sleeves and fitted legging trousers.

Achromatic colors such as black, white and gray continued to rule the fashion frenzy since the Spring/Summer Collection last November, while gold, bright red, purple and others were applied for highlights. Subdued sapphire blue and khaki were also notably present, while gray was the genderless fashion keyword.

A variety of typical winter fabrics including silk, velvet, leather, wild fur and wool were utilized.

As for male attire, the slim silhouette accentuating masculine lines with easy-to-wear, manly achromatic colors was a strong trend, demonstrating diverse combinations to attract both the metrosexual and the ubersexual breeds.

In addition to the all-time favorite, seasonless denim, such fabrics as leather, wool, silk and cotton were in use to create somewhat avant-garde sexless looks with the help of some feminine chiffon or metallic accessories.

Creative garments aside, one of the fun parts of the 2006-2007 Fall/Winter Seoul Collection was celebrity watching, as the event was open to the public for a 7,000-won admission ticket.

If lucky, you may have had a seat near a beloved entertainer such as actor Ryoo Seung-bum, Jinu from the hip hop duo Jinusean, TV personality/former fashion model Hyun Young, actor Chun Jung-myung, actress Hwang In-young and more.

Some celebrity fashionistas even appeared on the catwalk, shining with their distinctive charisma combined with designers' creativity. Among them were singer-turned-actress Yoon Eun-hye, singer Park Jung-ah of the girl vocal group Jewelry, fashion model-turned-actor Cha Seung-won, actress Bae Doona and Shim Eun-jin _ former member of girl band Baby V.O.X.

Others were singer Kim Jung-min, singer and actor Lee Ji-hoon, rising actor Shin Dong-wook and boy band Super Junior members Choi Si-won and Kim Ki-bum.
