When BTS’ V, Blackpink’s Lisa, and South Korean actor Park Bo Gum made a joint appearance at Celine’s Menswear Spring/Summer 2023 show, the fashion industry witnessed the power of Hallyu beyond music and film. This past September, NCT’s Jeno made history as the first K-pop star to walk the runway at New York Fashion Week with Peter Do. And when Louis Vuitton’s exclusive contract with global musical powerhouse BTS came to an end, Dior, Valentino and Louis Vuitton were quick to name members Jimin, SUGA and j-hope as their house ambassadors. Elsewhere, rookie K-pop girl group New Jeans have also been enjoying their moment in the luxury fashion spotlight, with members Hyein, Hanni and Minji tapped as the new ambassadors of Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Chanel respectively. Thus, it comes as no surprise to see K-pop’s most beloved sitting on the front row at Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2023.
From BTS’ RM‘s sleek suit at Bottega Veneta and Blackpink’s Jisoo‘s mesmerising purple dress at Dior to (G)I-DLE’s Soyeon channelling The Matrix in an all-black leather look at Ferragamo, here are the best-dressed K-pop stars this Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2023.
