This dress which resembles Korea's traditional 'hwarot' uses traditional Korean embroidery as its motif and expresses the oriental image by using silk satin which has been hand-washed repeatedly to give it a vintage texture and uses a bright red color like blood. To match the hwarot's luxuriousness with denim fabric has also been noted to be a definitive point in Jinteok's fashion history.
