Tomorrowland begins today, marking the migration of ravers and all-night partiers from all over the world, who flock to Belgium for 3 days of live DJ sets from some of the biggest names in electronic music. The festival has 16 stages, sees hundreds of thousands of patrons, features otherworldly decorations, has won Best Music Event at the International Dance Music Awards 5 years running and even has a ‘Church of Love’ guarded by nuns, containing a bed, condoms and tissues (let your imagination work the rest out). All of this makes for an event bursting with energy, and often the fashion seen reflects the intense vibe of the festival, with lots of bright colours and outrageous get ups that would be tough to get away with in any other circumstances.
With the same quirky, and unrestrained style are those in the K-pop community, and this style of dress has been marked as an upcoming trend to look out for. K-pop fashion is often overt, bright and very individual, and much like the fashion seen at Tomorrowland, it’s all about feeling free to express yourself.
Designers such as Jeremy Scott have encouraged this kind of look, through his collections for his own brand as well as for Italian fashion house Moschino, but is it possible to pull these looks off? Some high street stores seem to believe so, and gaudy garms seem to be billed as the trend to take on this summer.
Will you be taking inspiration from K-pop and Tomorrowland this summer?
