Menswear designers have been stepping up their game during recent years. Fashion is evolving and its focus is no longer on just females. The industry is also slightly pivoting in geographical terms.
World capitals such as Paris, Milan, London, and New York and their respective fashion weeks continue to lead the fashion world. When talking about menswear, we must highlight Milan. Pitti Uomo is Milan’s special fashion event dedicated entirely to men. It remains the most important international venue when it comes to menswear worldwide.
As we speak, more and more fashion capitals are emerging. Among those, Seoul is coming strong with creative and powerful designers that are in high demand. Korean fashion is trending and it is no different in menswear. South Korea is recognized as a core fashion-forward destination when it comes to male fashion trends.
