The fashion show and exhibition held by FIT of the State University of New York Korea, at Songdo Hyundai Premium Outlet on Saturday, June 5, ended in success. The event featured various programs, including the exhibitions of fashion works, fashion shows, fashion exhibitions, and natural dyeing experiences. Using natural dyeing techniques on Korean paper, the designers presented eco-friendly fabrics on the theme of “memories” and received positive responses.

The natural dye used in the antibacterial fabric is absorbed through skin pores and helps treat atopy and lung cancer.” A SUNY Korea admission/promotion booth was also set up to provide helpful information to visitors.
