The UAE Embassy in Seoul participated in the exhibition "Korean Fashion Meets Traditional World Clothes", which opened on September 1, 2021 at the Multiculture Museum in Seoul, Korea, by presenting a collection of Emirati clothing and accessories that symbolize the culture, traditions, customs and heritage of the UAE.
The exhibition contributed to introducing the traditional Emirati dress in the Republic of Korea. The Embassy also gave full explanation to the visitors of the exhibition about the nature of Emirati customs and traditions and traditional dress, in addition to the Emirati names for each piece that was donated to the museum.
A group of embassies accredited to the Republic of Korea participated in the exhibition, including the Sultanate of Oman, Algeria, Egypt, Paraguay, Russia, Morocco and other countries, in which the traditional exhibits symbolizing the participating countries were displayed.
It should be noted that this exhibition expresses the integration and harmony between the different fashions from the countries of the world in one place, and is a great opportunity to see the cultural aspects of the countries participating in the exhibition, as well as to learn about the characteristics of the fashion culture in the world, which leads to more acquaintance, rapprochement and openness.
The embassy's participation in the exhibition comes at a time when the UAE and the Republic of Korea celebrate the "Year of Cultural Dialogue 2020-2021". The exhibition contributes to promoting Emirati culture to the Korean public, within the framework of the special strategic partnership relations that bind the two friendly countries.
