Abstract

As the world becomes more globally oriented in economics, politics and business, including the fashion industry, it is important to study how cultural meanings accompany or change a designer’s ideas with respect to his/her design work. In particular, the most essential competitive advantage in today’s apparel industry is that of skilled human resources, such as creative designers who serve as cultural interpreters when designing products (Jin, 2004).

Keywords: Culture, fashion designers, South Korean, and creativity
