Every year, designers promote their newest collections during fashion week in major cities. In 2021, New York Fashion Week began on Feb. 14. Because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, digital runways were created to allow a greater global reach.
According to a press release, Yeonjun “was chosen as ul:kin’s brand model for his tall height and exceptional body proportions to present the collaboration pieces of the Korean designer brand.”
Yeonjun’s appearance was streamed on the official New York Fashion Week website at 8:30 p.m. EST on Feb. 16. The TXT member later uploaded images wearing ul:kin on the band members’ official Twitter channel.
Other musicians took part in New York Fashion Week
YangYang of NCT and WayV and soloist BIBI also walked in New York Fashion Week. BIBI and Yeonjun wore ul:kin and YangYang represented Jarrett.
Soompi reported that the three walked as part of the “digital runway for Concept Korea F/W 2021, which is an official program for New York Fashion Week.”
In total, the program featured three Korean fashion labels: WNDERKAMMER by Shin Hye Young, ul:kin by Lee Seong Dong, and Jarret by Lee Ji-Yeon.
