In order to build and expand global network, Seoul Fashion Week invites many international buyers from world-renowned department stores, select shops and online retailers as well as buyers from 12 Middle East and Asian countries which are considered emerging fashion markets.
This season, the “Generation Next” runway shows, which will be joined by a total of 20 designer brands including SEOKWOON YOON, MOON J, NU PARCC and SETSETSET, will take place at the GN show venue of Eoullim Square, DDP. In addition, “SFW Young Talents Show”, SFW’s new program that was launched last season, will be held on a bigger scale at its new venue on the 3rd basement floor of Sallim Zone, DDP.
Seoul Fashion Week will play as a mediator between young talented fashion students and global fashion media and select shop buyers. Meanwhile, there will be held a sampling market garnering much attention from visitors who want to buy the fashion items of Generation Next Seoul designers. On the last day of the trade show, October 19(Sat), visitors who missed pre-registration deadline will have a chance to join the shows.

An official from the Seoul Design Foundation(CEO Choi Kyung Ran) said, "Now that the trade show will take place alongside with runway shows, the GN_S trade show will gain maximized synergy effects and its reputation as a globally recognized fashion fair will be further enhanced." "The GN runway shows will be open to the public, so I hope many visitors will come and enjoy the shows along with college students’ fashion exhibitions."
