It is clear that Korean dramas now become very popular not only in Asia but also worldwide. Apart from the script and actors, fashion is one of the important factors that make the drama’s success. So why is Korean drama fashion becoming a worldwide trend?
No one can deny that actors play a big role in helping the film in general and fashion in movies in particular have wider coverage.

Based on their strong influence, Korean filmmakers have created a fashion craze. Whether it is a casual or high-end outfit, accessories or makeup, all become popular after only a few episodes. Besides enjoying the drama, the audience also looks forward to the “fashion show” of the actors. This is also the reason why the clothes or utensils in the movie are bought by fans. Many costumes quickly “sold out” immediately after the film was broadcast.
Most dramas are broadcast at perfect times. Actors’ outfits suitable for seasonal weather. This not only helps the drama to attract audiences but also creates fashion trends that match current tastes.
Besides the selection of costumes from the collection of famous designers, the costumes of Korean drama actors also come from other domestic brands. This may stem from two main reasons. First, help the film closer to the majority of the audience. Second, support and promote the domestic fashion industry to develop.
Products of domestic brands have continuous design innovation and multi-style, stable quality and reasonable price. By letting actors wear products from these brands, fashion in Korean movies can reach the majority of young audiences. As a result, the popularity level has also increased significantly.

Comments Off on Why Is France Such an Influential Place for Fashion?
Paris is known internationally as being the fashion capital of the world and has kept that title for almost centuries. Many of the most sought out after brands have originated in France, such as Chanel, Saint Laurent, Louis Vuitton, and Dior – and the list is growing on a yearly basis. While now it’s any fashion designer and model dream to have their work displayed on a catwalk – the importance of fashion has been prevalent in France since the 17th century.
While this could be debated for a week straight, the French could thank King Louis XIV, who begun ruling in France in 1643, as being one of the first monarchs to put an emphasis on fashion. The Sun King was known for his lavish aesthetic, which is clearly shown just by viewing a photo of the Palace of Versailles as well as looking at the outfits he sported during his reign. Louis went as far as to buy art related industries, such as the textile, brought it to France and used it to the highest extent. This is probably why some of the best fabrics and clothing making materials can be found in France today.
The Growth of Haute Couture
Although, when haute couture ( a fancy way of saying creating fitted clothing for an individual grew in popularity around the end of the 19th century, many tailors and seamstress were almost forced to move to France to establish their business while also having the resources needed at hand. While there are a ton of influential individuals in the haute couture business, one man stood out the most. An Englishman named Charles Fredrick Worth was noted to be one of the first to open a business in this expertise. After that, many others followed in his footsteps and made Paris and Milan become the hotspots for fashion.
Though it may help to reference a more modern and popular French designed that left their mark in the fashion industry – Coco Chanel. Even though saying that she changed the fashion industry is more of an understatement – Coco left such a huge influence that can still be seen in today’s fashion. She ran from the idea that women’s clothing had to include a suffocating corset as she favoured free, flowy items of clothing even more. Her fashion designs even cultivated a nickname – the “flapper style.”
Even Christian Dior changed the fashion game with his post-war designs, which lightened up the atmosphere as it allowed for men and women to focus on something other than the devastations. The A-line skirt with the tight waist was the hit with women as it gave them a dainty and more feminine appearance. While controversial at first, it is obvious that the Dior brand is still surviving, and the original looks created by Christian Dior himself can still be found today. It does help that after Dior became popular ad his house was flooded with personal letters and requests for clothing – that France was officially titled as being the fashion capital of the world.
This title is being held strong by the French due to new modern-day designers, such as Hubert de Givenchy rising to popularity. While more designers are coming out of places, such as Italy, the fashion history that France has cannot be beaten.
Comments Off on Fashion: What to look forward to in 2018
It’s a new year, and while you might think that this means wholly new designs for the fashion world, you’d be mistaken. In fact, as always seems to happen with fashion, a few old favourites are returning. Remember the scrunchie? It’s back. Believe it or not, it won’t be the only fashion accessory from yesteryear which will be returning either. Let’s see what will be making a comeback or its debut later this year.
The Scrunchie is Back
Remember the scrunchie? Well, love it or hate it, it’s coming back. The must-have 90s hair accessory is making its return in 2018, bigger and more colourful than ever before. Ribbons were last year, it seems. If the popularity of the ribbon in 2017 was anything to go by, we’ll expect to find plenty of women with scrunchies in their hair this year – unless, of course, you really do hate them that much.
Bohemian is Back
It has been a long time since Sienna Miller walked around sporting the bohemian look. In fact, almost 15 years after she pulled it off, it is back. Stores are going around selling everything from South Western skirts, to suede and patchwork coats. If you’ve still got some of that 2003-2004 garb lying around, it might be time to take it out and give it a bit of dusting.
It has probably been a long time since you were in high-school. Not only is the backpack, well, back; backpack bling is back, too. Adorning your backpack with small spikes, patches, badges and other forms of bling (remember those bears that everybody used to carry attached to their bags?) is apparently the in-thing for 2018.
Punk comes and goes. When it’s out, people get criticised for being “out there”, but this year may just have seen the return of fully-fledged punk. Major designers such as Dior and Prada are getting in on the act, too. Red and black could be the colours for you to wear this year, and if you’ve still got your fishnet tights and mini skirts girls, now could be the time.
The 80s are Brought to Back Life
It isn’t just 90s scrunchies and 2000s backpack bling which are coming back. Many retro looks seem to be popping in 2018, and that includes the 80s. Legwarmers are creeping back into fashion (albeit not as bright as they used to be) and 80s hairstyles (crimped, specifically) are also in right now. Woolen sweaters, big brooches and shiny colours – are you looking forward to glitzing it up in 80s garb once more?
The Return of Floral
Remember those sofas and chairs we used to have, with the floral patterns? They are back, only this time surfacing as summer frocks and dresses. The 60s inspired floral patterns are being put out by many top designers right now, so if none of the classic returning looks check your boxes, you can always opt to retain looks you like most.
