2NE1 Leads the Korean Fashion Pack.

Posted in Uncategorized by modman on March 13, 2010

Korean girl group MV’s were never very good.. they used to be mostly 1) girls in cute/school girl/pink outfits prancing around, never really singing and definitely not good at dancing, 2) girls in leather trying to dance provocatively. And failing. For the most part, its still the same.

Thankfully, though, there are a select number of entertainers/girl groups like Hyori, BoA, Brown Eyed Girls and a few others that have ventured out with new concepts over the years. Currently, 2NE1 leads the pack in fusing fashion, art, graphic/3D design and music into one mind-blowing video.

2NE1 hasnt been out for very long, but they have definitely made a name for themselves early on, and fast. CL, Minzy, Bom and Dara have unique, distinctive styles that separate the group from SNSD, Kara, T-ara, etc. Their eclectic music serves as the perfect platform for out-of-this-world fashion.

The two men behind 2ne1’s style are Yang Seung Ho and Lee Hyun Jung. Yang is a graduate from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (a school that boasts John Galliano, the late Alexander McQueen, Gareth Pugh as alumni). Lee is a graduate of Chelsea College of Art. Yang and Lee are besties with Big Bang’s G-Dragon.. if you didnt know before, you can definitely see that they have similar tastes. Yang and Lee arent about traditional fashion or classic styles. The duo embraces avant-garde, futuristic and fun styles. They especially love the work of American fashion wild-child, Jeremy Scott (shoutout to 2ne1 on the wikipage!). Whats not to love?

Check out the visually stimulating MV for Try To Follow Me. CL (이채린) OWNS the MV. Dont you agree?

But I hope 2ne1 doesnt follow in the footsteps of Nicole vs. The Pussycat Dolls.. That would be a shame.

    Don’t worry. CL wont follow PCD. Sandara is explosively popular and rest are just as awesome.
