Yesterday, Vy, Quinn and I headed to Co-ex for a ‘tea festival’. It turned out to be more of a tea convention but it was still interesting. Lots of tea pots to look at, plenty of green and black teas to sample and a fashion show. That we were in. We’ve been getting into some unusual adventures on Saturdays recently. (See May 21, 23 and May 30 entries)

The three of us were admiring some interesting ceramics when these two women came up to us around 2pm and asked if we wanted to be in a fashion show in about an hour. Sure, we said, having no idea what we’d be getting ourselves into. It turns out the fashion show was really at 5pm BUT after some wandering around Coex Mall, they got us into the outfits we’d be modeling early. Then it was on to walking lessons. Vy and I were slouching and looking at our feet! Quinn had to much swagger in his walk! But by the end we were pros (… sort of…). There’s a very particular way you have to walk for Korean fashion (we learned), slow and with little movement.

The fashion show, complete with Bob Marley music, was pretty fun. I think our one issue was we though we’d be wearing traditional hanboks and things like that whereas the actual clothes were a lot more… earthy. BEHOLD!

And as if that weren’t enough, afterwards everyone went to dinner and they invited us along – and paid for everyone. Pretty cool. Certainly worth the ₩3,000 admission to the convention.
