See & Do
The area around Ewha Womans University, Korea’s famous women’s university, is commonly called Ewha Womans University Fashion Street. This district features a number of stalls lining the streets selling fashion items, such as clothing, shoes and accessories, for young women. It offers a distinctive shopping experience, with all the fun of a “shop-crawl” from stall to stall and store to store along the narrow alleyways.
This street is a popular fashion destination for young women. Walking down from Ewha Womans University subway station to the main entrance of Ewha Womans University, and turning into an alley on the left, there are a number of street stalls . Furthermore, the alley on the right side of the main entrance to the university contains many designer shops as well. Recently, a few major shopping malls have taken the place of large and small stores set in alleys, offering consumers still more choice.
Another specialty of the fashion street that cannot be missed is the alterations services, where tailors have taken alterations to a new level of design expertise. The fashion street is also famous for its concentration of hair salons, meaning people can find a whole new look from head to foot.
