Couture Korea

Asian Art Museum

From the courts of the Joseon dynasty (1392–1910) to the runways of Paris, Couture Korea immerses audiences in the splendid sophistication of historical and contemporary Korean fashion. his original exhibition features more than 120 works, ranging from re-creations of garments from the Joseon dynasty to contemporary designs from Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel, pioneer of Korean fashion Jin Teok, and two Seoul-based Korean designers. Couture Korea delves deeper than the clothing's formal beauty and superb craftsmanship to show that these works, as art, are not only intimate objects but also cultural expressions.


This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Couture Korea :

This exciting showcase features historical Korean fashion and modern interpretations propelled by a new generation of Seoul-based designers taking to the global stage. Presenting more than 120 works, the exhibition considers the traditional commitments to craftsmanship and bold aesthetics of the Joseon dynasty (1392-1910), juxtaposed with contemporary designs.
