Linda Kim, an FIT professor, has participated in two global exhibitions this summer: 2023 SFTI-Piattaforma Moda International Exhibition in Milan and 2023 International Fashion Art Exhibition in Stockholm.
The 2023 SFTI-Piattaforma Moda International Exhibition took place in Milan, Italy from July 6th-8th. The Korean Society of Fashion & Textile Industry and Piattaforma Sistema FormativoModa ETS (Piattaforma) co-hosted this international exhibition, with the theme of ‘Making Fashion Circular’.
Darkness to Light
For this exhibition, Professor Kim designed artwork that was naturally dyed using indigo, nutgall, and red soil on upcycled and braided denim shirts. The piece of art is called “Darkness to Light,” because it portrays a gradient of the dyed colors in the clothing.
Another exhibition Professor Kim participated in was the 2023 International Fashion Art Exhibition in Stockholm, Sweden. An ongoing exhibition from August 22nd to September 22nd, exhibits promote the charm of K-fashion under the theme of Obangsaek (오방색: the color scheme of the five traditional Korean colors that include white, black, blue, yellow, and red).
Professor Kim designed a piece, “Cheonggiwa Hanok,’ that represents the Korean Traditional House with blue roof tiles by layering this organza and translucent mesh fabric: the elegant curves of blue roof tiles, and the shadows and light reflected on the window paper are expressed.
