Models wearing a colourful range of face masks walked a runway Friday (July 24) in South Korea’s capital.
Lim Yeon-hee, the chief organiser of the Seoul fashion show, said she hoped to create a cheerful vibe after the nation went through months of grueling anti-virus campaigns.
Fashion weeks in London, Paris and Milan have largely gone digital. These have however, received mixed reviews.
"The entire world is in a very difficult situation due to Covid-19, ” said Lim, wearing a glittering pink mask matching the style of her out-sized fedora.
She added: "In addition to an economic slump, activities in culture, arts and sports have also been reduced.... We should all work together to overcome the crisis.”
Similar mask-themed fashion shows have been held in major cities such as Paris and Shanghai. Although, some physical runway shows at fashion weeks still sent out models without masks. – AP
