Event Title

Jogakbo Rose

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.
