The trio will be part of the Concept Korea F/W 2021 show. It is one of the plethora of programmes in store for the upcoming New York Fashion Week.

In a pre COVID-19 era, it’s commonplace for Korean artists to fly over to the states to grace shows held by the various designer brands.

And Blackpink’s Rosé, WayV’s Lucas, Jessica Jung and Eric Nam did just that in previous years.

But things are a tad different this season because of the pandemic.

In an announcement by the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism and the Korea Creative Content Agency (KOCCA) on Feb 16, they introduced digital runways and virtual shows instead.

This platform is specially tailored for local designers who were unable to showcase their collections on the global market because of the pandemic.

However, only three brands will be taking part in the virtual runway. They are WNDERKAMMER by Shin Hye-young, UL:KIN by Lee Sung-dong, and JARRET by Lee Ji-yeon.
