K-pop history was made in New York City on Tuesday, September 13th. We’re not even talking about chart-topping hits or millions of Instagram followers. Instead, a much quieter yet impactful moment occurred at 28 Liberty Street in Manhattan’s Financial District. In a quiet, bright studio with stone floors and floor-to-ceiling windows, designer Peter Doe staged his Spring 2023 show during his New York Fashion Week, standing out overlooking the runway. We created a minimalist look. The opening of the show was K-pop musician JENO of supergroup NCT. (The designer’s collection was part of a partnership with South Korea’s largest entertainment company. SMEntertainment.) The Korean rapper, dancer, singer and songwriter takes to the catwalk alongside veteran models, fellow K-pop stars (SHOHEI and EUNSEOK from SM ROOKIES) and brand friends (Peter Ash Lee from Burdock Media). Did. JENO’s look: chic tailored smoking tuxedo jacket, wide-leg black trousers, and sky-high platform heels. After one last walk down the runway for the finale, he headed to the designer’s after-party at Brooklyn’s Dumbo House. “I have a lot of respect for these artists because they put so much time into their craft that people don’t see,” Do said of K-pop featured on his show. “Few people realize the intensity of what goes on behind the scenes to achieve the final product. increase.”
