More than 1,200 guests are planning to attend Fendi’s show on June 2, held on an artificial island on the Han River; the event is the Italian fashion house’s largest fall-winter show in Asia. While Fendi representatives say they will continue negotiations with the city, Seoul city official Seo Jeong-hyup said that negative public sentiment led officials to demand the removal of fur from runways. Fendi has 13 stores throughout South Korea.
