  • Fashion : Seoul is a Fashion Hub in Asia

    The city of Seoul serves as a fashion hub of Asia, home to creative fashion designers, dynamic consumption patterns, and the promising Korean Wave. Hence, the city leads the fashion industry. The Seoul Metropolitan Government has designated the fashion industry as one of its eight key new growth-engine industries that will feed the citizens in the future and has provided diverse supports to foster the industry. Condé Nast International has ascertained the potential of Seoul not merely as a hub of the Asian fashion market but also as one of the global cities that will lead the world luxury industry. That’s why it held the second Condé Nast Luxury Conference in Seoul (Apr 19–21, 2016).
