This studY was intended to probe the scheme for correctly making Korean fashion design known to the world. It is because its suggestion could find out in the current of the 1980s in which Japanism fashion design led to fashion in Europe and the U. S. It can be said that this success was attributed to Japanese high economic growth. increased interests in fashion. increased awareness of the fashion industry, production of designers active in the world arena, systematic and active support of the fashion circles and government for the fashion industry and so on. Through this process, Japanism was positioned as the costume-culture style proper in the European society. Even though different from Japanese designers in terms of expressive elements or methods, even European designers could be found to make use of Japanism design. Korean government has recently begun to attempt to nurture Koreanism or Korean look as world-class fashion. But there are a considerable number of obstacles in making Koreanism or Korean look known to the world due to such several factors as the lack of interests in fashion, the lack of globally active designers, and the like. It is necessary to nurture the fashion industry and educate and train designers from the long-term perspective. In addition. both government and the fashion circles need to provide for more active and reasonable policy for hOlding the Korean Fashion Fair, expanding the Seoul Collection to the more global level, opening the way for new designers, and so forth. Furthermore, our academic circles need make much research on the scheme for the glottalization of Koreanism or Korean look.
