Hwarot is a wedding robe worn by princesses during the Joseon period. The traditional ceremonial robe was disassembled to be recreated as baeja that can be worn comfortably in modern times. Through mix and match of traditional material (silk) and technique (embroidery) with denim, the most contemporary and folksy material, Ms. Jin shows the beauty of contrast, the essence of her design.
