Korean Tradional and Modern Fashion Show 2014

Along with Iloilo Kpop Organization’s event (Search for the Next Super Idol 2 and Who Is Next: Kpop Dance Cover Battle) was the annual Korean Fashion Show where they showcase both Traditional and Modern fashion in South Korea.

The fashion show was lead by the Iloilo Korean Community Association in collaboration with MK Academy where ESL students from the said school took over the runway, and of course, fan girls and boys hearts.

Hanbok is Korea’s national costume and like our Barong Tagalog and Baro’t Saya (or Filipiniana) in the Philippines, it also comes in variations.

16 Kids and adults both exhibited different designs of Hanbok from those worn casually by a normal citizen to those worn by the elites from Joseon Dynasty to present.

Aside from the traditional costumes, they also displayed this generation’s style — the Korean Way.

We all know that nowadays, the Koreans have immersed as fashion icons of the world and so a lot look up in their fashion industry from their idols, actors and actresses to models, which we discern visually from the dramas to their music and variety that are exported to promote their culture all around the planet.

This year’s Korean Fashion Show was one of the highlights of this year’s celebration of the Korean Festival.

We hope to see more of it next year!
