Book Intro

This book chronologically traces changes in Korean clothing culture since Korea's Liberation Day on August 15th, 1945. Clothing culture is shaped by the 'people' who make and wear the clothes and also by their actions and thoughts. This book chronologically studies a collective psychology and the way it is expressed in clothing, particularly attending to the people who wear it, and their thoughts and choices. It also focuses on the connection between a single article of clothing or fashion trend and the effect it had on society and culture as a whole. To do this, this book selects the fashion trends that had the deepest connections with the societal and cultural background at the times that they emerged. This book explores their meanings within the context of the time period that they were most prominent. You could call this book a collection of records that reflect contemporary views and evaluations of past clothing culture. These records reveal the past of the clothing culture from the viewpoint of the humanities and social studies.
