Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Seattle is hosting “Runway to Partnership,” a series of hanbok fashion shows along with cultural performances this week to celebrate the 140th anniversary of Korea-US diplomatic relations.

On Oct. 29, a Hanbok fashion show will take place at University of Washington, featuring Kumdanje and OUWR. About 40 Hanboks designed Kumdaje’s CEO and designer Lee Il-soon will be introduced. Kumdanje’s hanbok attires have been featured on TV shows and films including Kington, a Neflix series, and The Throne, a 2015 movie. OUWR is inspired by Korea’s traditional patterns.

While the event on Oct. 29 is open to the public, there were two similar invitation-only events on Oct. 26 at The Rainier Club and Oct. 28 at the Museum of Flight.

In addition to the fashion shows, a fusion gukak band Granada and dance crew Active Sona will perform on Oct. 29.
