Description:
The Korean women have suffered and toiled and still today are faced with challenges unknown to us Canadian women. Through the storms and ravages of time they remain composed and outwardly untouched by the external forces. They are a rare beauty. The Hanbok is a traditional dress designed to resemble the natural beauty of a flower in shape and colour. The perfectly designed Hanbok should even sound like wind in leaves as the wearer walks.
