Hanbok, Korea's traditional clothing, is an essential part of Korean life, still worn by men, women, and children today on special occasions and holidays. Today, the great diversity and elegance of hanbok have inspired innovative fashion trends and design creations worldwide. Under the theme 'Culture, Beautiful Communication', this exhibition presents exquisite examples of both traditional Hanbok and original contemporary clothing and introduces the artists that have created them.   


This event is held in celebration of Korean American Day on January 13, which was designated by the U.S. Congress in 2003 to recognize the substantial contributions of Americans of Korean heritage to the United States.
