Sohyeon´s father became the subject of this collection. He was a prime example of life in Korea in the 1970´s. When people learn and gain knowledge from life experiences, they then pass it down on to their children. This is what Sohyeon wanted to represent through this collection, the fashion knowledge learnt from his father that now she wants to represent. As a result, an element stimulating people’s nostalgia affects sustainable fashion. Consequently the project provides the evidence based on zeitgeist theory.

The concept of Zeitgest is the importase of studying and predicting fashion trends. Zeigeist refers to “the spirit of the times” (Kaiser 1998, 488)m and is believed to be related to the fashion in dress at any given time (Blumer 1969).

Since the 1960 the textile industry has massively developed thanks to the support from the goverment which pursued export-trade and industrialisation. As the government tried to introduce numerous fabril technics, it led the industry to produce synthetic fiber in domestic clothing. From 1972 Jeil-Mojik made an effort to manufacture polyester jersey for a suit with wool jersey, supplied from 1973.

In 1974, Seijin-Rayon invented viscose fiber jersey which contains not only high levels of water absorption unlike polyester but also strong resistance from electricity. Due to a lot of advantages, it recieved passive responce from the textile market. In 1975 there was a large production of this product.

Most of the textiles from this period, such as polyester, wool and viscose fiber for jerseys, prevailed.

The contemporary meaning of synthesis is generally attributed to the German chemist Adolph Wilhelm Hermann Kolbe. Kolbe developed the idea that organic compunds could be derived from inorganic sources. His theory of the existence of secondary and tertiary alcohols was successfully confirmed but the later synthesis of these substances.

The main idea of blended fabrics is to combine fibers with certain qualities with fibers of other qualities that compliment each other. Cotton and polyester are example of blend fabrics. Cotton is comfortable to wear, however it wrinkles easy where on the other hand polyester does not wrinkle. After combined both then results in a comfortable, yet wrinkle-resistance fabric.
