Member Program: Dress, Ideology and Fashion in Late Joseon-Dynasty Korea

Korean painting with seven figures

 

The establishment of Neo-Confucianism as the official ideology of the Joseon dynasty (1392-1920) profoundly affected Korean dress and fashion. Socio-economic changes brought about transformations in fashion, many of which blurred previously established social divisions and countered Neo-Confucian tenets of austerity and modesty. Curator Lee Talbot will share new research discussing the ideological underpinnings of Joseon dress and key fashion changes during the culturally vibrant late Joseon period.
