Staring down at the five pairs of shoes immediately in front of me this morning, I noticed that with the 5 kids that were in front of me, 4 of them were wearing Converse. Two of them were wearing North Face jackets. Late last year, I got burglarized and they took a lot of valuable things, but no clothes…except for one item: my NORTH FACE BLACK VEST. Why? Koreans LOVE brand names. Once a brand name is accepted or popularized, it BOOMS!
Nevertheless, Koreans have truly added to the financial wealth of many fashion companies in this world on top of the ones mentioned above. While the parent company of Louis Vuitton may hate Korea for making a bunch of the copies on the streets of their very famous hand bags, Koreans DEFINITELY still lined their pocketbooks with plenty of francs! Koreans also popularized the bags to other nations as well influencing many more consumers to buy their products.
