From beauty to fashion and music, South Korea has been at the forefront of setting global trends and Bloomingdale’s is honoring the cultural hub by launching Window Into Seoul.
This marks the seventh edition of The Carousel @ Bloomingdale’s, a rotating pop-up shop driven by culturally relevant themes and curated by guest tastemakers.
On October 10th from 6PM – 8PM, Bloomingdales 59th Street location (the Carousel on 1) will host a evening that highlights W Concept’s collection of carefully selected independent designers featured in the latest Carousel installment, Window Into Seoul curated by Minya Oh, the Koreaphile and cool-girl also known as Miss Info. RSVP HERE.
Window Into Seoul is open now until November 4 at four Bloomingdale’s locations – 59 Street, Soho, Century City, San Francisco – and online at Bloomingdales.com/TheCarousel.
