(27 Jul 2017) SOUTH KOREAN POP STAR TAEYANG COLLABORATES WITH ITALIAN FASHION HOUSE FENDI South Korean pop star Taeyang was in Hong Kong Thursday (27 JULY) to promote the collection he designed for Italian fashion house Fendi. The capsule collection, called "FENDI for Young Bae" uses Taeyang's real name - Dong Young-bae instead of his stage name. The collection includes t-shirts, sweatshirts and accessories designed with Taeyang's favorite color – black - with words or images that are inspiring to the artist, such as "grace," "faith," and "passion." The 29-year-old singer attended Thursday's event wearing pieces from the collection. A large crowd of fans and onlookers gathered at the store to get a glimpse of the star. This is Taeyang's first time working as a fashion designer. He said that he worked closely with the brand for three to four months to produce the collection and thoroughly enjoyed the process. "I worked closely with Silvia Fendi (creative director). The people at Fendi really listened and took to my ideas. It's a wonderful collaboration and a great experience," said Taeyang. Taeyang is a member of the widely popular South Korean boyband "BIGBANG." While his bandmate, T.O.P, has been in the news recently because of drug related charges, Taeyang is focusing on expanding his solo career. He recently kicked off the "White Night World Tour" in Japan and plans to take his show to US and Canada later this year. He revealed plans for his next solo album, "My solo album is nearly finished. This August, I will be able to present to you a new look and new songs," the singer said. In addition to a busy solo career, Taeyang is also the honory ambassador for next year's Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. The pop star said that it's a huge honor for him and his parents who are huge fans of the Winter Olympic Games. For the next few months, he'll be working on writing songs for the game, "I'm a singer, so I will use my musical talent to write songs to cheer on the athletes to show my support," Taeyang said. The "FENDI for Young Bae" collection is in Fendi stores now in Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Macau, Malaysia and Australia.
