Photos from Vogue, January of 2011

Here are some photos of my handmade Korean clothes featured in Vogue Korea, 2011!

120500500A male royal dancer is wearing a silk outer coat in deep purple and an inner coat. On his shoulders he wears shoulder ornaments made of goose feathers. During the reign of King Sejong during the Chosun dynasty in Korea, it was deemed inappropriate for girls to perform dance in front of men, so boys younger than the age of 10 years old were trained hard in order to dance at events and royal parties.

Layering was a very important concept in the history of Korean hanbok, signifying formality. Even dancers would wear several layers of clothing.
