Korean Fast Fashion Brands

TOPTEN (탑텐)

Need to update your wardrobe with some cool Korean threads? Check out TOPTEN! It’s a clothing store where you can find everyday clothes at prices that won’t break the bank. They have a bunch of stuff you’d see people wearing on the street, so you’ll be rocking that authentic Korean style. They have clothes and accessories for men too, and most things cost between 10,000 and 60,000 won. It’s a popular spot for teenagers and people in their twenties, but anyone can really shop there!

The budget friendly brand by Shinsung Tongsang Co is one such Korean fast fashion brands that is growing rapidly, with sales expected to cross 1 trillion Korean won in 2024. Earlier, Uniqlo was the only fast fashion brand (albeit Japanese) that was earning in this range in the Korean fast fashion market.

8Seconds

If you’re looking for clothes that are both on-trend and practical, check out 8seconds. This Korean brand, launched in 2012, is part of the Samsung C&T Fashion Group and is known for its stylish yet comfy everyday wear.

SPAO (스파오)

SPAO is a subsidiary of the E-Land Group with affordable clothing available in the range of 10,000 and 20,000 won. They are even cheaper than what you would find in Uniqlo (ranging above 30,000 won usually).

SPAO is the place to be for stylish clothes that let you rep your favorite groups and dramas. This popular brand isn’t shy about collaborating with big names in Korean entertainment, churning out must-have merchandise featuring your K-Pop idols.

A 2019 survey showed SPAO (think fast fashion) as the top clothing brand for young adults (19-34 year olds) in South Korea. ZARA and TOPTEN10 followed close behind.

Musinsa Standard (무신사 스탠다드)
