Must see & do in New York with Megan Hess
New York is probably my favourite city in the entire world, and it’s somewhere I’ve been travelling back and forth to for about 15 years now. I fell in love with the energy of the city straight away – the noise, the people, the diversity between Uptown and Downtown. It’s also the city that gave me my first big break in terms of my work, so I have an affection and a love for it. It’s the sort of place that no matter how many times you go, you never see everything, so you have that desire to get back.
The exhibition space was designed section by section to give the audiences a new and exciting experience of Megan’s work. Illustrated display rooms showcased her collaborative work with luxury brands as well as New York and Paris ‘through a fashion eye’ themed rooms to experience the streets of the fashion cities based on Megan’s books of the same name. An interactive red carpet and runway allowed for the audience to experience Megan’s iconic, chic characters walking the runway. Audiences were able to attend lectures of the opinion leaders, a fashion show at the runway zone, and countless other exciting events throughout the duration of the exhibition.
“The main theme of the exhibition is ‘fashion’ but it will be expressed with fashion illustration. This type of exhibition is being tried in Korea for the ﬁrst time. The audiences will experience new fashion fantasy when they encounter Megan’s artworks.” Yohan Choi, the art director of the exhibition.
After launching the ﬁrst exhibition in Korea, the exhibition will be introduced in Japan and China, following the same concept.
