GD's fashion sense, which is quirky and experimental, has won him the attention of famous designers across the world. In fact, the "Crooked" singer was seen at the Paris Fashion Week in June 2015 and was even included in Chanel's "Graduation Photo" by Karl Lagerfield.
British Magazine Dazed and Confused termed GD's style as fluid and far-reaching. The article stated, "... off-the-runway pieces from Givenchy, Saint Laurent, Rick Owens and Balmain mingle with avant streetwear from Hood By Air, KTZ, Ambush."
Recently, G-Dragon aka Jiyong collaborated with Italian designer Giuseppe Zanotti to bring out a limited unisex collection of shoes. His recent footwear collection, which is available in shops across Korea, is symbolic of his style: bling co-mingles with the subtlety of hi-street fashion.
