SUNY Korea Museum of Modern Costume is pleased to invite you to the '50 yrs of Kimdongsoon' exhibition. Dongsoon Kim’s garments exhibit her legacy, tracing her 50-year career. At her early stages in the 1970s, Kim, as a so-called big-time designer, achieved the myth of popularizing many ready-to-wear brands. By the 1980s, Kim launched her brand, Kimdongsoon Ultimo, resulting in a rare success for a designer brand to be popularized as casual wear. She donated 40 yrs of her collections to the SUNY Korea Museum of Modern Costume in 2021 and is now a leading professor at SUNY Korea FIT. *An opening ceremony was held on May 31st for this exhibition and the exhibition will be held until October 31st, 2022.
