Coexistence Unisex Fashion by Suk-Kyung Lee

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Coexistence

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Unisex Fashion

INSPIRATION:
There was a girl who was 8 years old. She was alone at the corner of a park in Geneva, watching the children playing there. She was confused, the children were speaking French. She could not fit into this group. 20 years later, she became a fully integrated person. This is my story but your story as well. In Geneva, people from different backgrounds live mixing together. Sometimes they encounter obstacles due to different cultures, different languages. They have different perspectives to look at the same object. Through these perspectives, the truth becomes the lie, the lie becomes the truth.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Coexistence collection 2019-2020 fall, winter is inspired by the values ​​of community life. In this collection, a mix and match style of HANBOK (traditional Korean costume) merges different colors and materials. The way to dress experimentally gives freedom and creativity to all fronts; a universal message without distinction of language, culture or origin. Diversified materials, as well as the quality of the finishing and the unique style, are an integral part of the DNA of these clothes; all enhanced with a mix of custom patterns that have been printed with calligraphy and multiple colors.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
All designs in this collection are reshaping the Hanbok. They break away from the stereotypes of clothing's definitions by experimenting with their position and their functionality.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in October 2018 in Geneva and finished in February 2019. It was exhibited in Le Bal des Createurs, Geneva in May 2019.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Fashion, Apparel and Garment Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
I drew two fabric prints, one using calligraphy and, the other, multiple colors. In both cases, the pattern represents the integration. Also, I created a quilted with two different colors of denim for this collection.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
This Collection consists of 1 coat, 2 jackets, 1 jumpsuit, 3 pants, and regular M/L size.

TAGS:
Perspective, Hanbok, Deconstructionism, Coexistence, Geneva, Unisex

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
One day, I was visiting the MAMCO (Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Geneva) to find inspiration. I saw a painting containing a multitude of times the letter Y. Although I thought I saw X, there was only Y, no X. At that moment, imagining an X in the middle of all these Y, I told myself that this X is like me; a stranger in the middle of all the inhabitants of Geneva. However, each of these people can feel being an X and see everyone else as Y. Hence, we are all the Y of someone else.

CHALLENGE:
I wanted to start from the Hanbok and reinterpret it with a modern image. At first, being so much used to the Hanbok' standards, I was not able to see it differently, to bring something new. I have tried different approaches; on fabrics, applications,... many attempts to overcome it. Eventually, the use of denim, reflective materials and cotton printed with various language motifs resulted in a collection combining modern and traditional images in coexistence and harmony.

NAME:
Suk-Kyung Lee

PROFILE:
On April 18, 1980 Suk-Kyung Lee was born in Busan, Korea. From her earliest childhood, Lee is passionate about drawing, she creates silhouettes and already associates different outfits. Later, she begins her first work in a clothing store and likes to combine pieces from different collections. She also plays on the different subjects and this experience develops the richness of her tastes and her creativity. Convinced that this is the way she should follow, Lee moved to Tokyo to study fashion. The second act of his life begins in 2009 in Japan. She learns language, culture and, although close to Korea, she is alone in an unknown country. Now immersed in the world of fashion at Moda Gakuen school, she affirms her talent and wins the school contest at the end of 2013. However, another turning point in her life is emerging. An encounter with a man will influence his destiny that is traced in fashion in Tokyo. The choice between a professional career all traced in Tokyo or following the great love in Geneva and clearing a path in fashion in Europe. The third act of his life opens with the decision to follow the path of the heart and settle in Geneva. Lee, however, does not forget the request of her teacher at Mode Gakuen: "Do not stop studying, even if you are in Switzerland!". The path followed is not easy, between the differences of languages ​​and cultures. Lee, who had grown up and lived in a conservative family and in a Confucian social climate, suffers from his identity and begins to lose motivation and self-confidence. Always attracted by fashion and convinced of her talent, she seeks the energy that will make her move forward. She shares with others her opinions, ideas, and communication with others. At the chance of another meeting, Lee discovers the school IPAC DESIGN GENEVE and his team which gives him confidence and motivation. She finds the little girl who is in her, develops her European cultural identity and integrates it into her Asian culture. His knowledge, ideas and fashion universe are growing and exacerbated by his motivation and support from the IPAC faculty. In the Bachelor project, she tells her story and also your story. Each of us can be alone, isolated in a group with the same codes. As Lee says, "I never want to stop, keep trying, develop my creativity. Continue to pass the obstacles too. On the way to the fourth act of my life." .
