Description

Couture Korea showcases historical Korean fashion and its modern reinterpretations at a moment when Seoul-based designers are making the leap to the global stage and international haute couture is finding inspiration in Korean art and culture.
With more than 120 works — from 18th-century kings’ robes to clothing by Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld — the exhibition considers how traditional dress remains an enduring expression of cultural identity in the modern world.
