Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the past six months, you’re probably acquainted with the hyperkinetic K-Pop earworm “Gangnam Style”. If you thought K-Pop would just be a 2012 hype, think again, because Gangnam Style will be everywhere in 2013 as well. But do not be afraid, dear readers! This year K-pop will also be accompanied by K-Fashion and K-Food, two things I am much more excited about than that funny little “Gangnam” dance.
Korean food is one of the most trendy cuisines at the moment, because of its perfect balance of texture, flavour, aroma and acidity. If you haven’t tried Korean food before, you should definitely give it a try: visit a Korean Restaurant or simply cook your own Korean food at home and turn your kitchen into your own little Gangnam!
For the past two years, we’ve seen a lot of Asian and oriental influences on the runway. But this spring be prepared to take it one step further and go Korean on your make-up! Korean women are obsessed with beauty: think false lashes and a perfect skin. Add to this a beautiful and elegant kimono ( with a Western twist) and a couple of oversized oriental accessories and you’re good to go!
