From July 11 to September 2, 2018, the ASEAN Culture House(ACH), which is operated by the Korea Foundation (President Sihyung Lee) will hold the ACH Special Exhibition “Colors of Asia, Revisited – The Case of ASEAN and Korea.” This exhibition celebrates the first anniversary of the opening of the ACH whose establishment was one of the outcomes listed in the Joint Statement of the ASEAN-ROK Commemorative Summit in Busan in 2014.

This exhibition was realized in collaboration with the Department of Foreign Affairs of the Philippines, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts(NCCA), the Embassy of the Philippines in Seoul and the ROK Embassy in Manila.

Haute couture costumes abroad for the first time

“Colors of Asia, Revisited” presents haute couture costumes created by prestigious designer Renee Salud and made of fabrics donated by ASEAN countries and the ROK. They were previously presented at the year-end fashion show “Colors of Asia-Pacific,” organized by the Philippine DFA last December.

Encounter of the Philippines’ fashion ambassador and the backbone of the Korean fashion industry

Renee Salud: Philippine fashion ambassador and trailblazer

Renee Salud is both a fashion designer and cultural producer who is considered an icon of the Philippine fashion industry. Throughout his life, he has contributed to the development and promotion of the Philippine fashion industry. A trailblazer for Philippine fashion, he actively uses indigenous materials in his shows to increase the presence of uniquely Philippine fashion on the global stage. With his collection created for the “Colors of Asia-Pacific” fashion show, Salud aims to broaden his fashion world beyond the Philippines to include fabrics and idea from all over the Asia Pacific region.

Lee Jean Youn: Once a rising star, now the backbone of the Korean fashion industry

Lee Jean Youn is well-known for his reinterpretation of the beauty and sentiments of Korean traditions with a contemporary touch.  His shows were displayed all over the world, including in Hong Kong, New York, Paris, Madrid and Qingdao. Lee transforms the aesthetics of Korean traditions into contemporary art works, and his creativity has caught the attention of the global fashion world.

Popular medium of fashion attracts people to the ACH and raises their understanding of the ASEAN region and its culture

As one of the staff members of the ACH put it, “This exhibition will not only greatly enhance the Korean public’s understanding of Renee Salud’s beautiful art and philosophy but also strengthen the friendship between Korea and the Philippines, as well as ASEAN as a whole, through the popular medium of fashion.  

The Opening ceremony will take place on Wednesday, July 11 at 17:00, followed by a designer talk featuring Mr. Salud and Mr. Lee. This event is free admission and is open to the public.
