Abstract

The purpose of this design was two-fold: to create a contemporary Korean ensemble inspired by the traditional Korean costume, Hanbok and to reveal the transition from tradition (complexity) to contemporary (simplicity). In order to invoke the traditional theme, textile design using lucky pouch motifs with colorful gradients was incorporated into digital printing. This design has cultural significance in that a lucky pouch is a traditional method for Koreans to wish others good luck. The creation of textile design using ethnic motifs by CAD and digital printing can enhance the aesthetic value of a garment, especially when introducing new ideas and designs for ensembles like this one. This method of transitioning from tradition to contemporary clothing can assist ethnic groups in finding clothing styles and designs that are comfortable, convenient, and sophisticated while honoring their cultural heritage.
