Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 12, issue 3, 1988, Pages 277~284
The purpose of study was to measure to body Surface area and the rational rate of Korean adult's women. The subjects are 20 years old to 49 years old women (Their bust width ranges from 74.5 to 101.5 cm, the height from 144.6 to 163.3 cm, the weight from 44.2 to 74.0 kg, Rohrer Index from 1. 02 to 1. 89). As the experimental method, both the gypsum method, by which the shape of body can be copied as it is, and weighing method, from which planed body surface area can be measured with consistant thickness of polypropylene film used. The results were obtained as follows. 1. After dividing the Korean adult's women into four groups (single and married women in their twenties, those in their thirties, those in their fourties). The change of body surface area was reviewed in accordance with age groups. No great difference among age group was showed in whole body surface area. 2. average value of body surface area is 1, 514m^2 and the part of trunk shows the biggest difference to the age groups. 3. After dividing the middle of body into two groups, the relation of symmetry of each parts is reviewed with difference in body surface area. The results shows that the part of head & neck and lower limbs are symmetrical. The part of trunk and upper limbs are unsymmetrical. 4. Regional rates of each part of whole body surface area are follows. head
, upper trunk
, lower trunk
, upper armpits
, lower armpits
, lower legs

Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 12, issue 3, 1988, Pages 295~307
The purposes of the study were to identify the general predictors of fashion leadership and to compare the fashion leadership predictors among different social groups. Thirty-one variables (thirteen fashion-related variables, five social variables, nine psychological variables, four demographic variables) were included in the regression analysis. Data were obtained from 446 women living in Seoul area by self-administered questionnaire. The results of the study were as follows: 1. Seven variables explained about 64 percent of the total variance of fashion leadership. The most important predictors of fashion leadership were fashion interest, use of marketer-dominated fashion information source, and 'stable-creative' self-image. 2. The predictors that consistently predict fashion leadership across different social groups (students, career women, housewives) were fashion interest and use of marketer-dominated information source. The predictors of innovativeness and opinion leadership were very different among groups.

The purposes of this study were: 1) to develop specific AIO variables(clothing variables) based on clothing behavior studies, 2) to segment apparel market by clothing variables, 3) to discribe the profile of each segment with clothing variables, lifestyle variables and demographic variables, 4) to Suggest effective strategies on apparel market of women's clothing. The Likert Type clothing questionnaires measured 6 aspects of clothing (fashion, conformity-individuality, practicality, aesthetics, modesty and brand consciousness & status symbols) dealing with activities, interests and opinions. In addition, lifestyle variables were measured with general AIO statements. The questionnaires were administered to 563 young women (students, career women and homemakers) living in Seoul. The data were analysed by factor analysis, ctustering analysis, multiple discriminant analysis, one-way ANOVA ana Duncan's multiple range test. The results of the study were as follow: 1) 4 factors emerged from factor analysis of clothing variables. Factor 1: lower interest in modesty and higher interest in aesthics, Factor 2: brand consciousness and status symbols, Factor 3: conformity, Factor4 : fashion. 2) Lifestyle variables clustered into 3 factors. Factor 1: positive social activity, Factor 2: family-oriented type, Factor S: materialism. 3) By cluster analysis of the 4 factors of the clothing variables, the apparel market of women's clothing was categorised into 3 segments (innovative aesthetics seeker group, brand and status symbols conscious group, clothing unconscious group). 4) The above three segmented groups were also significantly discriminated by lifestyle and demosraphic variables. 5) On the basis of the findings, effective marketing strategies of women's clothing were suggested.

Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 12, issue 3, 1988, Pages 343~350
This study was carried out to investigate the microstructure and physical property of PET POY which was taut-annealed under various conditions. The DSC melting curves of annealed PET POY showed double melting peaks in most cases. As temperature and time increased, form II crystal became sharp and increased in size, and form I crystal decreased in size. The slower the heating rate, the higher the programmed heating effect during DSC analysis. Crystallinity and briefringence of annealed specimens increased as the treatment temperature and time increased. Breaking tenacity of specimens treated for 3 minutes increased as the treatment temperature increased, but others decreased. Elongation at break decreased as the annealing temperature and time increased. Dye uptake of annealed specimens decreased as the temperature increased up to
. then the uptakes increased at higher temperatures. At the same temperature, dye uptake of the specimen decreased as time increased.

Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 12, issue 3, 1988, Pages 351~361
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships between fashion style adoption and consumers' demographic characteristics, selection criteria and use of fashion information sources respectively and find out how their concerned variables influenced high fashion style adoption. For this study, the questionnaire was administered to a sample of 554 female adults in Kwangju. frequency distribution, Mean, Pearson's Correlation, Analysis of variance and Path Analysis were used fer the statistical analysis. The results obtained were as followers. 1) Level of fashion style adoption showed a normal distribution like a wave. 2) Consumer's demographic characteristics variables, such as age, educational level and income significantly associated with fashion style adoption. Younger consumers adopted tile high fashion style 41)an more aged consumers. while consumers in higher educational and income level adopted high fashion style than consumers in lower. 3) Among individuality, conformity, practicality and economy in selection criterias, only individually and practicality associated with fastion style adoption in clothing purchase. In the case of the high fashion style adoption, purchasing with individuality was increased, while purchasing with practicality was decreased. 4) The use of marketer dominated sources in fashion information sources significantlyassociated with fashion style adoption. In the case of high fashion style adoption, the use of marketer dominated and neutral information sources was higher. 5) The use of marketer dominated information sources had a main effect on high fashion style adoption in clothing purchase. Especially in the group composed of college students and occupational women, individuality and praticality as selection criterias came to be important effects. While in the group composed of housewives and non-occupational single women, age, educational level and income came to be important effects.
A Study on the Term 'Cholik'
Lee Eun Joo ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 12, issue 3, 1988, Pages 363~371
The present paper mainly conerns with the four controversial issues: the exact period in which the Cholik was introduced into Korea, the morphological characteristics, the phonological and semantic aspects of the term itself. First, upon the political and serial ground, the Cholik was introduced at the later part of mid-koryo dynasty. Second, the original form of 'Cholik' was modeled after the Mongolian 'pyok-jok-po', an outwear with pleated skirt. Third, the term 'cholik' was derived from Mongolian 'terlig'. It came through China with the Chinese letters but the term maintained the Mongolian sound. The variety of the present pronunciations like 'chorik', 'chonik', 'chomni' and various notations in Chinese letters could be attributed to different phonological changes and analogy. Last, th original meaning of cholik was somewhat similar to 'militia' or 'soldier', but the social function of the wearer gradually discolored to indicate only the costume for lower officials or the military uniform.

Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 12, issue 3, 1988, Pages 373~382
The purpose of this study is to compare the image discrepancy with Korean clothing and Western clothing using semantic differential scales. 19 adjective pairs were used for this study. The survey questionnaire were given to 946 married - women in Seoul. For the statistical analysis frequency, percentage, mean, ANOVA, t-test and Factor analysis were used. T he major findings were as follows: 1. To evaluate the women's clothing, four major factors were obtained and it was found that women evaluated quite differently their dresses with Korean and western styles. 2. The major evaluating factor of Korean dress was aesthetic aspect and on the other hand the main factor of western dress was functional aspect.

Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 12, issue 3, 1988, Pages 383~390
To investigate the soil-redeposition and color change on dry-cleaning, the white and, dyed, fabrics of cotton, silk, polyester and viscose rayon were put into ordinary commercial dry-cleaning machine with soiled cloths. The solvents used were hydrocarben, perchloroethylene and fluorocarbon. From the result, we obtained the following conclusions by examining soil-redeposition, color difference of fabrics and tenacity of cotton fabric. 1. In case of white fabrics, as a whole, perchloroethylene shows the lowest soil redeposition. When distillation process is adopted, the rate of soil redeposition is lowered. with hydrocarbon sdvent. The order of soil redeposition rate of fibers are following; cotton> viscose rayon> silk> polyester. 2. In case of dyed fabrics, the color difference between soil redeposited fabrics and originals (
) is similar with white fabrics in pattern, and the order is cotton, viscose rayon, silk and polyester. The color difference between fabrics, treated by pure solvents and originals (
) is also validated as a little. It seems to be due to the bleeding of dyestuffs from fabrics. 3. There is a little change of tenacity of cotton fabrics by dry-cleaning with perchloroethylene solvent. It is supposed that the damage is more influenced the repetitive mechanical action during dry-cleaning than by acidity of the solvent having the acid value of 0,14.
