South Korea: alternative fashion show

Categories: East Asia, South Korea, Labor

Jamie from interlocals.net reports on an interesting alternative fashion show [1] in Seoul: The clothes were made and modeled by the women who made them as well as by a number of prominent figures from Korean civil society. The participants from civil society included labour union activists from the largest and most militant trade union, the KCTU; ministers of labour, justice, and gender equality; members from each of the major political parties; popular entertainers from both the social movements and from the conventional pop music industry.
