Jogakbo Rose

Presentation Type

Event

Description

The purpose of this project is to combine the cultural design components, construction techniques, and highlight the sustainable practice of using natural dye to create a modern look. The inspiration of this garment is derived from the Jogakbo that is a patchwork wrapping cloth that was commonly used in traditional Korean society. The design is made of traditional Korean textiles I acquired as family heirloom. Jogakbo patchwork technique was the rational choice to salvage useable pieces from the old deteriorated fabrics. The ramie and hemp were pre-mordanted with alum, dyed with natural dyes, and washed. The main design elements were line and shape with a strong modernity in its geometric plane partition of the rose shape. Jogakbo pieces were assembled using flat-felled seams. The dress creates rhythmic characteristics with the structural patchwork and decorative rose motif, contributing to the expression of a sense of emphasis and unity.
