Lee Young-hee, designer of the traditional Korean attire 'hanbok,' held a hanbok fashion show at the Samsung Experience exhibition hall inside the Time Warner Center in New York on May 22.

This year, she showcased a total 80 outfits of combined Korean and Western beauty including 15 made from a new material processed from the traditional Korean paper 'hanji.' Hanji threads combined with silk were woven into cloth, which were then naturally dyed.
