It was certainly a colourful event at the UNON offices in Gigiri on Saturday afternoon. World-renowned Korean designer Kim Hye Soon was bringing the "Hanbok" magic to Kenya.
Hanbok is the traditional Korean dress specifically associated with the Joseon Dynasty. Soon's collection was made up of vibrant colours and the best silk in the market.
More so, the models on the runaway were drawn from the diplomatic and business circles and included the wife of the Korean ambassador Park Chung-hee, KTN news anchor Lulu Hassan, marketing manager Radio Africa Group Caroline Mutoko and fashion designer and Rialto fashions director Lucy Rao. A total of 21 models showcased the collection.
The exclusive show was attended by UNON director-general Sahle-Work Zewde, Miss World Kenya 2012 Shamim Nabil among others.
