We had the honor to work with the leading international shopping destination in California at the South Coast Plaza in helping celebrate this year's 2019 Lunar New Year. This year being the Year of the Golden Pig, the designer (Laura Park) was inspired with the theme of gold for the 60 gowns that made up the fashion show. The designer, based in Los Angeles, has created a brand new collection of traditional Korean hanbonk dresses aligned with this year's theme of gold. Laura Park's dream has always been to blend the Korean traditional hanbok with modern design influences, in order to make what was once a very difficult to wear ceremonial garment into an every-day wearable dress.
We had the honor to kick off 2019 by being a part of ILEA LA (International Live Events Association)'s Fashion Event! The evening was an unconventional fashion show where event industry professionals saw all the new 2019 LA's evening-wear trends, over great cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at STK Los Angeles.

Fashion Shows since 1993
When LEEHWA first opened in the early 90's, we helped make mainstream the Korean traditional and modernized fusion hanbok dresses through grand fashion shows here in Los Angeles. Not only did we try to mainstream the Korean traditional dresses by creating them in more modern styles, we also hand-picked a more diversified cast of models. Here in this video, designer Laura Park had a fashion show during Wedding EXPO in Los Angeles and displayed for the very first time, newly blended Hanbok dresses along with traditional Korean Wedding dresses.
Hollywood Short Film
We had the privilege of working with talented producer and script writer, JeeYoung Lee, on her short film based on the last empress of Korea. We were able to dress the actresses and actors in our traditional Royal hanboks and had an absolutely amazing experience! All the Korean traditional hanboks worn for this film were 100% silk in all hand done embroidery, which took each robe approximately 2 whole years to make. Enjoy this short film to get a quick Korean Traditional history on the last royal Queen of Korea.
