We Are The World // South Korea
Transforming Traditional South Korean Hanbok Handbags
Ethnographic Research // Product Design
Fashion design in context:
I identified my heritage, pathway, and conducted extensive primary, secondary, and ethnographic research: Fashion as a set of systems and part of a system. Then I documented ,from a historical point of view, as to the origins of historical, indigenous clothing and how or if it has changed in the present day (traditional Korean clothing is the hanbok). The goal of this project was to learn about the history of my culture, designing new fashionable, exciting looks!
