North Korea May 12 2013

I visited North Korea on the first of May, when everyone was dressed up for labour day. Ladies wore wide bright coloured dresses, with mostly flower patterns. Other then the national dress man and woman wear a lot of uniforms or the so-called mao-suit. Kids are mostly seen in 'camaraderie' outfits; dark blue shirt and trousers with a red hacker chief around their neck. 

Unfortunately the guides informed me that they where not allowed to take me to a fabric shop. I am still trying to find fabric that resembles these colours and patterns, so that I can create a Smûk inspired by the national dress of North Korea.......
