Fashion designer Ko Tae-Yong, the founder of ‘Beyond Closet’ label is famous for his menswear design. Of particular fame are his school uniform and clothes designs for the popular 2009 korean drama “Boys Over Flowers”.
He recently held his label Beyond Closet’s spring-summer 2015 fashion show at Seoul Fashion Week from Oct. 17-22.
The collection won rave reviews from buyers and critics at home and abroad, for its unique, fun and preppy clothing lines.
Like the school uniform designs in the drama ‘Boys Over Flowers’, Beyond Classic takes its motif from preppy American classics and adds unique wit and Korean style to the collection.
To carry on the vibe of freedom and the elated mood of the collection, Ko worked with glitzy young K-pop idols: Kang Seung-yoon and Song Min-ho of YG Entertainment’s new boy group WINNER modeled on the runway, while Zico of K-pop boy group Block B wrote the music himself.
