Runway Rundown: Song Seoyoon Throws A Zenon-esque Rager [NYFW]
Imagine what it would look like if Zenon Girl of the 21st Century’s best friend, Nebula Wade (i.e., tween Raven-Symoné), hosted a twenty-first birthday rager. If you’ve already fallen deep into the land of late 90s nostalgia, look no further: Song Seoyoon’s NYFW show delivered exactly that and more, à la carte, to resounding (and perhaps, out of this world) praise. Presented at lower-Manhattan mainstay China Chalet, the runway (a removable wooden dance floor) hosted a line-up of diverse bright, young things whose main priority was simple: to party. Each model donned a rhinestone on their chin, leaving the spectators feeling as if they were peering in on a private club of friends with a million inside jokes, and killer style to boot. Her construction technique, with ample use of reflective and holographic material as well as stiff textures and prints, was executed with expert precision.
Even with the praise and attention that Song Seoyoon’s epic VFILES No. 7 presentation garnered, it feels as though she’s still the best kept secret in the New York fashion scene. Her ability to translate specific vibe into tangible clothing, combined with the creative platform that she’s building for herself, proves she is an original and, ultimately, a star. We know her; we love her; and she has us yelling, ZETUS LAPETUS!
