A fusion of Korean and Creole Culture, the annual Kimhyesoon Hanbok Fashion Show will be back in the islands of Seychelles as part of the special event for the 2012 Kreol Festival, which is this year in its 27th edition and will take place between 26 and 31 October.

Scheduled to take place during the Kreol Festival period on October 31 at the Constance Ephelia Resort, this Korean Fashion Show is organised as a cultural exchange between Korea and Seychelles, where traditional Korean-styled makeup and clothes comes on display in colourful hues, in a blend with the exotic flavours of Seychelles Creole cuisine - ideally when the whole of the islands are in full celebration of its heritage.

The event is organised by the Seychelles Honorary Consul in Korea, Mr Dong Chang Jeong and the office of the Seychelles Tourism Board (in Seoul, South Korea) together with the Korea Foundation, INOCEAN M&C, Constance Ephelia Resort and Creole Travel Services.

Being a cultural exchange event, the Constance Ephelia Resort’s 'Seselwa Restaurant' has been earmarked as the host venue of the fashion show, which is set to start at 7 pm.

A high-level delegation of seven from the Suncheon City of Korean, headed by its Mayor, will be in attendance at the event, as well as a group of nine Korean press members who are travelling to Seychelles especially for the event.

Some 20 Seychellois models, including Sherlyn Furneau, Miss Seychelles…another world 2012, will be on the catwalk for this fashion show.

Apart of from the fashion show, guests will be able to enjoy the unique Seychelles Creole cuisine during that spectacular evening.
