LEESLE is the symbol of Korea's contemporary Hanbok. Its beginning dates back to 2006. In 2006, 'Sonjjang Design Hanbok', which became the birthplace of LEESLE, has introduced dress-type Hanbok In 2011, it evolved into contemporary Hanbok brand ' LEESLE' by reflecting the times

The very moment when modern Hanbok was came to our minds was the 'Wearing Hanbok 100 Times Project' It was a challenge to wear in Hanbok for 100 days in a year We expected success, but failed due to several factors. It was because the skirt was wide and long, which was inconvenient for daily activities, and people needed courage to wear it because of other people's gaze

Since then, we have been thinking about how to wear our clothes naturally and stylishly in everyday life, and this is where LEESLE with Hanbok concept began

Through LEESLE, Hanbok has been reborn as the contemporary fashion
She is at the heart of LEESLE Combining Korean tradition and modernity, she is leading the innovation of contemporary Hanbok

After many twists and turns, she started her business at the age of 20
Publishing 'I go to Hongdae in Hanbok', she created a craze for the young generation to wear Hanbok.

Her passion is to introduce Hanbok to people’s everyday life.
