Korean Women's Wedding Dresses
Pyongyang, May 6 (KCNA) -- From olden times, the Korean women customarily wear chima (skirt) and jogori (jacket), a traditional Korean costume, in their wedding ceremonies.

Brides in the costume look very beautiful and elegant.

In this regard, KCNA met Jong Yong Sun, chief of the Sosong Korean Tailor's Shop.

Jong said:

Wedding dresses have been considered most gorgeous among national costumes the Korean women wear.

Typical of them is green jogori and crimson chima.

Light pink chima and jogori has become a fashionable dress in present days.

Light pink color is believed to be symbolic of happiness of grooms and brides as it represents the springtime of life.

The costumes' color should conform to national character and modern aesthetic sense.

Wedding dresses have their own features in each locality.
