A NEW SPACE AROUND THE BODY
Emerging Korean Fashion Designers, an exhibition that explores the new generation of South Korean designers


A NEW SPACE AROUND THE BODY
– Emerging Korean Fashion Designers, an exhibition that explores the new generation of South Korean designers, whose works are characterised by humour, hypothetic worlds and highly sculptural creations, almost appearing as a frame for the body. With an explosion of colour, modern techniques, craft and unexpected fabric combinations, their work can be seen as a reconstruction of the constituted ideal of beauty and non beauty, both on a visual, intellectual and philosophical level.

Exhibiting are:
Minky Jaemin Ha, Juhee Han, Ara Jo, Minju Kim, Yeashin Kim,
Yoolhee Ko, Katleen Kye and Unbounded AWE by Laykuni.
All are graduates from the prestigious fashion departments at Royal Academy of Fine Art, Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten in Antwerp, Central Saint Martins and London Collage of Fashion. In a short space of time these designers have already had high profile collaborations such as Lady Gaga and featured in Vogue, ELLE, Dazed and Confused, ID magazine.

Curated by Ji Hye Hong and Sofia Hedman (independent fashion curator) this exhibition is also part of the inaugural International Fashion Showcase, developed by the British Council and British Fashion Council. The International Fashion Showcase coincides with London’s Fashion Week and sees fashion designers from across the globe exhibiting their works throughout London. The Korean Cultural Centre UK (1-3 Strand) is proud to be a part of this Showcase, utilising its central London location just a stone’s throw from the home of London Fashion Week at Somerset House.

After studying art at Hong-Ik University in Seoul, Minky Jaemin Ha completed his BA in Fashion Design in Womenswear at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design (CSM) in 2011. Minky’s highly sculptural work can almost be seen as a frame for the body. His latest collection ‘What men live by’ is a symbolic and metaphorical statement – each outfit shown symbolises a certain stage of one’s life in capitalism. Born, Adapted, Addicted, Dead, Reborn and Sacrifice.

UNBOUNDED AWE BY LAYKUNI - laykuni.com

Lay Ku completed her BA in Menswear at CSM, MA in Menswear at LCF in 2009. Lay’s own label, ‘unbounded AWE’ which was founded in 2009, exemplifies surrealistic images. The label AWE was formed to represent the unbounded imaginative communication between the subject ‘A’ and the public ‘WE’. Lay works very conceptually with her designs and as much as the clothes, the surrounding space is used as a canvas.
