Abstract

Mokpo is a harbor city where ocean cultural product development has been actively conducted as one of marine tourism specialized projects. The Dept. of Fashion and Clothing at Mokpo National University has researched and developed new fashion products with the ocean images every year with support from Mokpo's marine tourism specialized projects. Program title is ‘Marine culture fashion product development’. The participants are 19 undergraduate students in the Dept. of Fashion and Clothing. Period is from March 02, 2017 until Dec. 22, 2017.

Ocean Image Products refers to products containing marine images or motifs. In this project, the ocean images are replicated and dynamically represented in the necktie designs. There are three designs. The first is to capture movements of various organisms slowly flailing in the ocean. The second is to capture the moment when the waves reflect the sunshine and twinkle and move rhythmically. The third expresses various dynamic shapes and colors of fish scales on the necktie design. The work was done by computer graphics & digital printing, and these textile designs were applied to tie products. The Results show Irregular, rhythmical curves acts as a design highlight on the background color, which symbolize ocean image.

The results drawn from this collaboration project would be a benefit for the local cultural tourism product development, which become the vitalization of the local economy. The employment of manpower would be required for the commercialization of the developed products, and employment of students who participated in the program would be expected.
