BANGKOK, Nov. 23 (Korea Bizwire) – A South Korean designer’s hanbok-inspired clothes were well-received at a fashion show in Bangkok.
Lee Seo-jung, the CEO of fashion brand C-ZANN E enjoyed a warm reception after showcasing 10 looks that were inspired by the traditional Korean dresses during the Thai Silk Fashion Show which was held Wednesday at CentralWorld, one of the biggest shopping malls in Bangkok.
The silk fashion show, dedicated to celebrating the achievements of Queen Consort Sirikit, often takes place in the presence of foreign ambassadors and their family members.
Lee was chosen to participate in this year’s event, the 7th iteration of the show, after her clothing enjoyed its fair share of media coverage following First Lady Kim Jung-sook’s decision to wear Lee’s work during international visits.
Kim wore a grew coat designed by Lee while accompanying President Moon Jae-in on his visit to Southeast Asian countries, while being seen wearing a blouse from the same designer during a first ladies meeting at the APEC summit.
“I hope clothes that encapsulate the beauty of hanbok become more popular not only in Thailand but other Southeast Asian countries as well,” Lee said.
