Written by Ethan  on 15 May, 2024

As Seoul's Dosan Park rises to be one of the great center stage areas for Korean luxury, it has been attracting globally renowned high-end fashion houses from all over the world. So, it's really no wonder to us that flagship stores of major Korean fashion representatives including Songzio, Wooyoungmi, and Juun.J, along with named street brands such as Supreme and Palace, are all currently operating near the said area.

Now, Dosan Park has become the new hotspot for both domestic and international fashion enthusiasts - establishing its status as a central hub of Korean high-end fashion.

The 'Big Three' of K-fashion—Songzio, Wooyoungmi, and Juun.J—have been constantly promoting the stature of Korean fashion globally by participating in Paris Fashion Week for nearly 20 years. The houses maintain a unique position in the crowded Korean fashion market, each brand having about 30 domestic stores and also being found in famous department stores worldwide as they significantly show more and more growth each year. Especially, Wooyoungmi and Songzio have flagship stores in Paris, France, illustrating their international presence as part of the Korean fashion industry.

For those who didn't know, the opening of flagship stores by fashion brands means more than just additional retail locations to the label. These stores reflect each brand’s unique design philosophy and identity, providing visitors with new experiences of the houses; such flagship store launches are vital to strengthening their foothold and competitiveness in the global fashion market.
