The design, Internal Peace in Life, consisting of sleeveless top and high waist skirt, reflects designersâ€™ current life journey with challenge, hope, and wish. This piece is unique in terms of application of Korean traditional clothing, called "Hanbok," into contemporary apparel design, simple pattern development using geometric shapes, and the visual experimentation of relationships between 2D shape and the evolving 3D structures. This design also presents the delicacy and beauty of hand overcasting and opens a new way to integrate 3D printed objects into wearable fashion products considering wearersâ€™ functionality.
