Concept Korea IV, a collaborative effort between the CFDA and (this season's Concept Korea winners) Korean designers Doho, Lie Sang Bong, Resurrection by Juyoung, Son Jung Wan, and Steve J & Yoni P was pretty fantastic. We zigzagged our way through the crowd to get a closer look at the designs and along the way we were nearly knocked over by America's Next Top Model runway coach Miss J. Alexander, who was on his way to greet designer Juyoung. Also there? Model Hyoni Kang and actress Vanessa Hudgens, who stopped by to pose for some pictures.
Becka Diamond DJ'd the event, appropriately playing KPop in the mix, while waiters passed out champagne and sparkling water. Off to the side, designers shot their lookbooks, pulling one model at a time out of their presentations. Speaking of models, we also spotted a few dancing on stage to the music, chatting to one another, and even drinking booze. Guess models just wanna have fun. —Katherine Park
