The best-dressed T-pop and South Korean celebs at London, Milan & Paris Fashion weeks
We spotted Dawn, Jimin, Bright and more at these Fashion Weeks.
There's a new breed of celebrity stardom in town, and it's not just the K-pop stars. Global fashion brands are now realising the true potential of T-pop celebs – that's Thai-pop for the uninitiated – who are attracting droves of fans worldwide.
Of course, this craze began when Thai boys' love dramas exploded in our continent, thanks to popular dramas like 2gether, KinnPorsche and F4 Thailand: Boys Over Flowers. Lead stars like Bright Vachirawit and Win Metawin became exportable names to the fashion world, thus becoming a driving force in their own right and for brands to tap into new surroundings.
Take a look at some of these T-pop and South Korean stars who dominated London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks together with A-list celebrities, who wowed the public and fans with their electric styles.
