Seoul Fashion Week may be a wrap, but our enduring admiration for the design talent based in the Korean capital only grows stronger. While scrolling through photos from the week has us busy planning our next trip, we decided to hit up two of our favorite local designers to get a list of their recommendations for Seoul shops, bars, restaurants and attractions. In Part 2, we speak with Hyoung - O Son, creative director at Customellow.
