Chima and Jogori, Traditional Korean Costume
Pyongyang, April 8 (KCNA) -- From olden times, the Korean women have liked to put on chima (skirt) and jogori (jacket) in spring season.

As a traditional costume, chima and jogori is humble and noble in form, beautiful in pattern and elegant in color.

The costume, varied in form and color according to seasons, represents the emotions and elegancy of the Korean women.

It is a custom for the Korean women to put on this costume on wedding days or galas.

A Korean dress exhibition takes place in Pyongyang every year, at which tailors would share their experiences in developing the costume.
