Seoul Designer Series: Rubina

Buckle your fashion seat belts, Seoul Fashion week is quickly approaching! The event will occur October 22nd-28th at the War Memorial of Korea and Xii Gallery. Many veteran and new designers will be showing this year making it a show not to miss! To get ready for it, I'll be introducing a variety of Korean designers. Many have shown in SFW, have created popular trends in Asia and are behind some of our favorite fashion items in Kpop.

She started out as a fashion model in the 70's and by the 80's opened up her first boutique. Ruby is also an advocate of sustainable fashion by holding various "Save the Earth" themed shows and events.
