ISTORY Jihyeon

정가 $57.00 $0.00 단가

Navy blue or grey long sleeve tshirt inspired by Jihyeon's Baekdusan Mountain story and her dream to become a fashion designers.

Jihyeon is a Korean resettler and has been living in South Korea for 8 years now. When she was 15 she visited Baekdusan Mountain with her family and saw for the first time in her life a foreigner. It was a big guy, with ripped jeans and a bit messy beard. Her first thought was, "Why is there a homeless looking foreigner walking around Baekdusan Mountain?". Her family ensured her his style was some kind of western fashion and that he must be quite rich to be able to visit this place as it's not easy for foreigners to visit Baekdusan Mountain.

From that point on she dreamt of becoming a fashion designer and this has encouraged her to leave her country and resettle in South Korea. The design of the elbow patch reflects this dream and her life journey.
