Emerging Korean Fashion Designers, an exhibition that explores the new generation of South Korean designers, whose works are characterized by humor, hypothetic worlds and highly sculptural creations, almost appearing as a frame for the body.  With an explosion of color, modern techniques, craft and unexpected fabric combinations, their work can be seen as a reconstruction of the constituted ideal of beauty and non beauty, both on a visual, intellectual and philosophical level. Exhibiting are: Minky Jaemin Ha, Juhee Han, Ara Jo, Minju Kim, Yeashin Kim,Yoolhee Ko, Katleen Kye and Unbounded AWE by Laykuni. All are graduates from the prestigious fashion departments at Royal Academy of Fine Art, Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten in Antwerp, Central Saint Martins and London Collage of Fashion. In a short space of time these designers have already had high profile collaborations such as Lady Gaga and featured in Vogue, ELLE, Dazed and Confused, ID magazine. Curated by Ji Hye Hong and Sofia Hedman (independent fashion curator) this exhibition is also part of the inaugural International Fashion Showcase, developed by the British Council and British Fashion Council. The International Fashion Showcase coincides with London
