Korean Shoe designer, ‘ELNORE’ paving the path at New York Fashion Week S/S 2023


Korean designers have been turning heads at many fashion weeks over the past few years and New York is one of them. Korea is one of the Asian countries leading in setting trends both locally and internationally.

This can be partly attributed to the ever-growing popularity of stylish K-pop celebrities including BTS, Jennie, Blackpink and G-Dragon as well as the rise in the number of homegrown, Korean fashion brands with strong character.

NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2022 – Korean shoe brand ‘ELNORE’, debuts a women’s ready-to-wear footwear collection with CAHIERS, during Cahiers’ show in the New York Fashion Week event, ‘Concept KOREA’.


The footwear collection featured unique and detailed sandals that merge the two distinct brands’ aesthetics.

“Our partnership with Cahiers marks ELNORE’ appearance of the feminine and chic mood and detailed design with our brand philosophy and silhouettes, reimagined through the perspective of CAHIERS,” says Mia Kim, Creative Director of ELNORE. “The collection delivers chic glamorous styles for powerful women.”

“I am so excited to be collaborating with ELNORE again. ELNORE’s iconic mood and color play using accents were a huge source of inspiration, and the resulting footwear collection adds an exciting and dynamic layer to the show,” says A-young Kim, CEO of CAHIERS.

This collaborative capsule, which will be available in the Spring 2023 collection, reimagines the classic ELNORE’ silhouettes chic styles.
