Style Sharing is a digital-fashion exhibition that highlights how innovations in technology, online interactivity and digital culture have affected the way
diverse cultures share ideas and in turn inspire fashion.
‘Style Sharing’ explores the symbiotic relationship between Korean and British styles. Showcasing the work of Korean designers inspired by British life, it will highlight distinctions between classic ‘Britishness’ and ‘Hallyu’ – a Korean term for South Korean culture’s popularity in the West.
Progressive and fast-paced modern life provides the backdrop for the exhibition, exploring the cultural exchange between Korean Culture and British Life.
The garments will reveal the relationship between British and Korean fashion, showing both how close – and how diverse – the countries are stylistically; blurring and contrasting the boundaries of fashion and culture.
