Seoul Metropolitan Facilities Management Corp. held a swimsuit fashion show to showcase the likely swimsuit trends for 2011, on a special stage under Ogwansugyo at Cheonggyecheon in Cheonggye 6(yuk)-ga, Jung-gu, Seoul at 8 pm on June 4.
The three-part event consisted of an opening performance and a fashion show; a fashion show held under the theme of “I’m a Cheonggyecheon Fashion Star Too,” designed to enable citizens to experience the thrill of a fashion show catwalk; and various events including celebratory performances and photo opportunities with fashion models against a ‘photo wall’.
The Cheonggyecheon Aquatic Fashion Show is a cultural program where participants can enjoy water, fashion and events at the same time, while contributing to the vitalization of Dongdaemun Fashion Town. From 2008 to last May, more than 300 professional models appeared in a total of 28 shows for a combined audience of over 70,000 people.
The 2011 Cheonggyecheon Aquatic Fashion Show takes place from 8 to 9 pm on the first Saturday of every month through October. Another swimsuit fashion show will be held on the first Saturday of July, while a hanbok (traditional Korean costume) fashion show, Opera Gala Show (September), and senior citizens’ fashion show (October) will also be staged.
