Hexa by Kuho - Behind the Scenes

Thanks to a lovely (but anonymous) commenter in this post, I was directed to these behind the scene videos of the preparations leading up to the F/W 10.11 Hexa by Kuho show held back in February. I don't know how you guys find this stuff, but I'm sure glad that you do and that you're kind enough to share! I've said it before and I'll say it again, this blog would be nothing without you readers. :)



Kuho is a well known designer in Korea. Last season marked his debut show in America and Freja had the honors of closing said show (no surprise there as Koreans really seem to be turning out to be her biggest fans). Since these clips are subtitled in Korean, my guess is that they're part of a documentary released over there. I think there might be a few Korean readers out there....if so, do any of you know where this is from? Or what it's for? EDIT: It's a behind the scenes feature that came on a supplement DVD with this month's Korean Harper Bazaar.



This second part is very interesting because you can see Freja all throughout looking as if she's about to pass out. She's doubled over a lot of the time, surrounded by people who are fanning her. Since I don't speak a lick of Korean I have no idea what's really going on, but it's obvious she wasn't feeling well before the show.

If you can remember all the way back to February, you'll recall that Freja did not walk in Rag & Bone, which was very unusual since she's usually a regular and David and Marcus are fans. She also showed up on the model board for Yigal Azrouel, yet she did not walk that show either. Both shows were held on that first Friday of NYFW, a day Freja missed completely. But she showed up on Saturday at Alexander Wang. So.....what happened in between the Hexa show that Wednesday and the Alex Wang show that Saturday?

Models are just regular people, albeit very tall, very beautiful, very slender people. They have off days, they get bitchy, they get impatient, and they get sick. I think this is just a case of the common cold. It seems like Freja got sick, took a few days off (which would explain her absence at certain shows), and then came back to have her best runway season in a long time. So now we have some kind of idea of what happened back in February. Although 6 months later, it really doesn't matter, does it? I guess this means that all of you who were freaking out over Freja losing favor with the Rag & Bone boys can rest easy now. ;)

Anyway, thank you anonymous commenter for the lead, and to youtube user dmdkd10 for uploading the videos!

Oh quite a detective work! ("So.....what happened in between the Hexa show that Wednesday and the Alex Wang show that Saturday?") I wouldn't have noticed, you are the best information source when it comes to Freja methinks

^Thank you so much!! I see it was already posted on tFS, but it's nice to have a link to the original source. :) I don't know if you're the same person leaving me all these leads on new Freja stuff, but if you are, I wish I at least had a blog link or website for you so you could get some proper credit! Thanks again!

Hey there! thnx for the blog ...
I really enjoy reading ur thoughts about freja´s work and I kind of agree ... i mean her latest works have been ... hmm BLAH! ... I dont really have a word to describe it, specially that Poetics of Body
cover, (it sucked!)...
I looove freja but whoever chose that pic as the cover was wasted ... that´s also why I think it´s not all freja´s "fault"
lets just hope for better photoshoots!

valebeu said...

poor freja!!
:(
Lets just wait for fashion week!!!

freja was sick before Kuho show
that's why some people surround her
help her. anyway freja professionally finished show with perfect walking, so Kuho people complimented her.
