I came back from a short trip recently; I was in Mexico from last Wednesday through Sunday for the wedding of my close friend Nam Gungchul, a talented stylist in Korea.

It’s actually the first time I had been on a trip in a long time, and everything about this journey had special meaning for me. Nam has been one of my best friends since we were 19- and 20-year-old fashion kids in 2002. Friends from both Seoul and New York came to enjoy the wedding.


As I’ve gotten older, I’ve been to many weddings of colleagues and friends, but this was the best one I’ve ever attended. Nam asked me to be his best man, and the weather was absolutely fantastic, with a beautiful beach, good dinner, jolly company, and a traditional Mexican celebration. An absolutely awesome experience, and I send the couple love and congratulations on their marriage from the bottom of my heart.
