"Our ambassador Kai has global recognition and fans all over the world. We expect that he will raise awareness about Seoul Fashion Week, as well as interest in Seoul.”

Seoul Fashion Week Spring 2022 has the theme of 'past-present-future', bringing to light historical places and landmarks of the city, such as the Gyeongbuk Palace. The season's fashion will be showcased through 37 digital "fashion films", offering an out-of-the-box, creative way to celebrate Seoul's history and culture together.
