Couture Korea (Paperback)

Hyonjeong Kim Han


Couture Korea highlights traditional ways of dressing and shows how contemporary haute couture is rooted in Korean tradition.Through garments including baeja (woman's vest), po (man's outerwear), and baegilbok (child's costume for the 100th-day celebration), this Korean fashion book explores how each gender dresses during different seasons, on special occasions, and according to social status. Interviews with contemporary fashion designers Jin Teok and Karl Lagerfeld and historians Minjee Kim and Cho Hyo Sook examine how historical and modern clothing design reinvigorates Korean cultural identity.
