Contemporary hanbok design: Cheollik Dress and Shamanism Collection by Tchai Kim

Young Jin Kim is one of the most well-known designers working with hanbok (traditional Korean dress) today. Through her fashion brand Tchai Kim she produces both custom-made traditional hanbok, including dansokkot (underwear), chima (skirts) and jeogori (jackets), and modern reinterpretations of traditional hanbok designs in her ready-to-wear collections. Kim has an intuitive and hybrid approach to design mixing global styles with local folk culture.

In this film, Young Jin Kim introduces the Cheollik Dress, one of her signature ready-to-wear items that is based on a traditional horse riding outfit for men, and her wildly extravagant Shamanism Collection from 2020.
