Lee Young-hee, a leading designer of hanbok or traditional Korean dress, has published a photo catalog of the fashion show she held on the Dokdo islets last year.
The show, which took place last Oct. 28, was the first of its kind ever held on the rocky outcroppings. It was organized with the aim of sending a message of peace by conveying the spirit of the Korean people wearing hanbok.
The original plan was to hold the show on Aug. 15, to coincide with Korea's Liberation Day, but it was postponed by two months due to inclement weather.
The catalog features photos of more than 10 models sporting royal costumes, such as those typically worn by queens of the Shilla Kingdom, as well as dancer's costumes from the Koguryo Kingdom and Lee's signature hanbok-style dresses.
