Description

Modernization of traditional crafts happens when the past is reimagined in terms of what the present wants. In light of this, a hanbok, which is a traditional Korean costume piece, has also been reimagined for the present day. This design is intended to reinterpret hanbok using both Eastern and Western styles in the digitally printed fabric, patternmaking techniques, and silhouette. To create a custom digitally printed silk charmeuse fabric, the designer watercolor-painted a motif of birds and flowers, inspired by hwajo-do, a style of Korean folk painting and modified and patterned the motif using Adobe Photoshop, Designers intentionally combined these draping and flat patterns styles to create the shape of the jeogori jacket, bodice, and skirts to mimic a woman’s hanbok during the late Joseon Dynasty, which was designed with a Ha-hoo-sang-bak silhouette featuring an upper part that is small and a bottom section that is exaggerated.
