Hanbok Fashion show at SGKstar 2015

SGKstar 2015

As the year draws to a close, the final event in the year long 2015 Korea Festival is the 3 days event- SGKStar 2015.

There will be food, beauty (The Shilla Duty Free shop is a partner) and lifestyle products on sale and display during the event held at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre. Of course, no Korea Festival seems to be complete without K Pop acts and there will be 5 groups performing.

These fan meetings are ticketed events held at Marina Bay Sands Convention Cntre Hall E. For more information, please check out Three Angles FB.

Beyond K Pop, the classical vocal group UAngel Voice will be performing for the first time in Singapore. The current members have won both international and regional music competitions and toured extensively overseas. These five good looking boys with toned bodies (check out this video) and beautiful voices will provide you with a different sort of Korean music.


But the highlight of the 3 days event is without a doubt the Hanbok fashion show by the celebrated Hanbok designer Lee Young Hee. She was the first designer to put hanbok at the French Haute Couture show. With her own boutique in Paris, her clothes have travelled all over over the world and are often a favourite with celebrities. Having just concluded her own exhibition in Seoul, the visually captivating collection will be available for viewing by the public in Singapore for the very first time. Consisting of three segments – Traditional Hanbok, Modern Hanbok, and “Clothes of Wind” which is Lee’s special collection, the show will last 40 minutes.

You can see photos of her designs here. The clothes are truly stunning.

The well known designer has been making and designing hanboks for 40 years. I guess it is apt that her clothes should be showcased as the closing event marking 40 years of Singapore-Korea diplomatic ties. Mark your calendar.
