UI freshman Katherine Yang will walk down the runway for the first time wearing a Hanbok — a traditional royal court Korean dress.
Yang will model during the Walk It Out fashion show by wearing not only the traditional dress but also showing the street fashion of South Korea, where the dress is from.
Clad in a Varsity leather jacket and skinny jeans, Yang hopes this will show people that Korea has many different styles.
The Walk It Out show will incorporate traditional dress and modern styles from the Middle East, Latin America, South Asia, East Asia, and Africa. U.S. cultures, such as hip-hop and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and allies, will also show off their styles.
