This project takes a critical look at the support available to young emerging designers in Korea from a comparative perspective. This project employs interviews and questionnaires to collect information from a sample of Korean students and graduates in London fashion schools to identify the real difficulties and differences they experienced, both in their education and in their early careers. What becomes apparent is the need to build an awareness of the symbolic and social value of young fashion designers at governmental level in South Korea.
