The main store types on purchase were types like a department store and underwear special store.
A Model of Adolescent′s Conspicuous Consumption on Clothes
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 25, issue 7, 2001, Pages 1215~1226
The purpose of this study is to develop a model of adolescent's conspicuous consumption on clothes. For this study, questionnaires were administered to 400 adolescents in Kwang-Ju. Employing a sample of 283, data were analyzed by using the structural equation model of the Lisrel analysis, in addition to cronbach's alpha coefficient for reliability and confirmatory factor analysis for validity. The results of this study was found that a conceptual model for adolescent's conspicuous consumption on clothes was judged to provide acceptable goodness of fit. Specifically, materialism and clothing conformity had a direct effect on conspicuous consumption on clothes, and materialism, hedonic shopping orientation and clothing interests had a indirect effect on conspicuous consumption on clothes. The results indicated that clothing conformity had important influence on conspicuous consumption and its influence on adolescent's conspicuous consumption was mediated by materialism, hedonic shipping orientation and clothing interests.
The Effect on Socioultural Attitude toward Appearance and Body Images on Clothing Benefits Sought -the comparison of age difference in female adolescents-
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 25, issue 7, 2001, Pages 1227~1238
This study was based on social comparison theory, and the covariance structure model was designed, connecting sociocultural attitude, multifaceted body image, and clothing behaviour under sociocultural influence. The practical purpose of this study is to identify the effect of sociocultural attitude toward physical appearance on the affective aspect of body images, the cognitive/behavioral aspect of body images and clothing benefits sought, and to examine the age difference in the female adolescents. The results of this were as follows: 1) Sociocultural attitude toward physical appearance had a negative effect directly on the affective aspect of body images, and showed the highest value in the group of high school girls 2) Sociocultural attitude toward physical appearance had a positive influence directly on the cognitive/behavioral aspect of body images, and high school girls'model showed the highest values significantly as well 3) High school girls'model showed the highest value significantly in the effect of the affective aspect of body images on the cognitive/behavioral aspect of body images. However, college group's model didn's show significant value 4) Middle school girls'model showed higher value positively than the other groups in the effect of the cognitive/behavioral aspect of body images on clothing benefits sought, and the high school girls' model showed higher value negatively in the effect of the affective aspect of body images on clothing benefits sought.

Apparel purchase behavior among internet shoppers -Focusing on perceived risks-
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 25, issue 7, 2001, Pages 1247~1257
The objectives of the study were to examine apparel purchasing behavior in internet shopping malls and the level of perceived risk when internet users purchase online. For this research, 15,000 internet users were given questionaries via E-mail, or special website online. The sum of 1958 questionaries were used for statistical analyses. Using, SAS package, factor analysis, Crobach's
-test, frequency and multi-response analysis were performed. As the results, 19% out of internet users had bought apparel products through internet shopping malls. Men had more purchasing experiences in apparels as well as general products than women. Among apparel products, T-shirts/shirts were purchased the most by internet shoppers. For perceived risks, 6 factors(quality risk, time/convenience risk, size and appearance risk, privacy risk and social/psychological risk) were investigated for this study. The level of perceived risk was lower when people had a purchasing experience in internet shopping mall than when they didn't. The level of perceived risk was lower when people had purchasing intend about apparels than when they didn't. Based on these results, marketing strategies will be suggested.
A study on the advertising effects by internet advertising types and fashion lifestyle
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 25, issue 7, 2001, Pages 1258~1269
The purpose of this study was to investigate the dimensions of fashion lifestyle, to examine the relationship between fashion lifestyle and internet advertising effect, and to identify the moderating effect of fashion lifestyle on the relationship between advertising types and advertising effects. Using dependent variables as internet advertising effects(i.e., attitude to advertising, attitude to product, attitude to brand), advertising types (i.e., banner, website e-mail types) and fashion lifestyle were used as independent variables. For the study, a sample of 152 apparel consumers participated in this survey research. The survey of design with a questionnaire was employed. Three types of fashion advertisement were included as banner type, website type, and e-mail type. For each type, two samples were included for the study. Questionnaire was developed with the html language and data collection was done through the internet on October 2000. For data analysis, descriptive statistics(i. e., frequency, percent), factor analysis, reliability analysis, linear regression and ANOVA were used. First, fashion lifestyle was classified with the seven dimensions: personality seeking group, planning purchase group, fashion leader group, fashion information seeking group, media preference group, commonness/traditional group, fashion follower group. Second, fashion lifestyle had signification effects on advertising effects. In the group of fashion lifestyle, fashion Information seeking group and planning purchase group were found to influence on the attitude toward advertising, and planning purchase type was influenced to attitude toward brand and attitude toward product. Third, main effects of fashion lifestyle were found to be significant. The correlation and interaction effects of fashion lifestyle and internet advertisement types were not significant.
Hydrophilicity and Biodegradability of Polyesteramides
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 25, issue 7, 2001, Pages 1270~1280
In this research of biodegradable polymers, it is essential to investigate the relation between biodegradability and molecular structure such as chemical constitution, hydrophilicity, molecular weight, crystallinity, chain orientation, and so on. It is also expected that hydrophilicity of polymer can affect biodegradability because biodegradation occurs with the help of enzymes and microorganisms. This study is to investigate the effect of hydrophilicity on biodegradability of polyesters. Hydrophilicity was varied by adding 5~30 mol% of amide groups, since amide groups are hydrophilic and used for improving thermal and mechanical properties. Surface energies and nitrogen contents by ESCA were measured to determine their hydrophilicity. The biodegradation was examined in activated sludge, enzyme and natural soil by
evolution, TOC, weight loss, and observation through microscopy. The results showed that hydrophilicity of polyesteramide films increased with the addition of amide, PBAD series of shorter methylene units showed maximum hydrophilicity at 15~20 mol% of amide contents, but PBSE exhibited maximum values at 5~15 mol% of amide contents. The biodegradability increased as the hydrophilicty on surface increased. The biodegradation rate of PBAD series was higher than that of PBSE series. Therefore, it can be concluded that the addition of appropriate contents of hydrophile enhanced the biodegradability of aliphatic polyesters as well as their physical properties. Also, the experimental results revealed the relation between hydrophilicity and biodegradability of polyesteramides.
A Study on the Dualism of Gender through the Costume in the Middle Age
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 25, issue 7, 2001, Pages 1281~1292
This is a study on the dualism of gender through the costume in the Middle Age. Jeanne d'Arc was an existential person in the Hundred Year's war(1338-1453). She persisted in retaining male attire and armour at her own request. One of the points for which she had been condemned was the wearing of male apparel. It was judged as an evil spirit and rendered Jeanne a witch and a heretic therefore she was burned to death in the market place at Rouen, on the 30th May, 1431. It is one of the evidence which represent dualism of gender through the costume.

The following condition was determined with both standing and moving position of body: (gradient of C.B.L/2)+3°and (back crotch extention)+2cm. 4. Development of new slacks pattern drafting was based on the result of data analysis. Trough the wearing test by the sensory evaluation, It showed that developed slacks pattern was judged better than existing patterns in items of comfort of comfort of silhouette and moving.
Dyeing of wool with rosemary extract
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 25, issue 7, 2001, Pages 1314~1320
Dyeing properties of rosemary colorants on wool fabrics were investigated. Reosemary colorants were characterized by UV and FT-IR analysis. Effect of dyeing condition on dye uptake and effect of mordanting on dye uptake, color change of colorfastness were explored. Rosemary colorants showed high affinity to wool fiber and its isotherm adsorption curve was Langmuir type. Therefore, it was considered that ionic bonding was involved in the adsorption of rosemary colorants to wool fiber. Rosemary colarants produced mainly yellowish color on wool fabric. The dyed wool fabrics showed generally high colorfastness except fastness to washing and light. Mordanting did not improve any colorfastness except that Sn mordant improved the light fastness. Bacterial reduction rate was increased up to 100% at 5% dye concentration. Therefore, antimicrobial activity of rosemary extract was confirmed.

The results of this study were as follows: According to the value factors students were classified into four groups. Among four groups success pursuit group was the biggest(58.4%). The four groups showed different clothing involvements and shopping orientations. Shopping orientations were influenced by the demorgraphic factors, value systems and clothing involvements. Among seven sopping orientation, entertainment pursuit was the most influenced factor y three factors. Additionally value system, clothing involvements and shopping orientations were influenced by the demographic variables.
Response to Clothing Utility-Reduction according to Clothing-Wearing Motives
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 25, issue 7, 2001, Pages 1332~1340
This study was designed (1) to examine the results of previous qualitative research on clothing-wearing motives by quantitative approach, (2) to explore the concept of clothing utility, utility-reduction and discard, and (3) to investigate the impact of clothing-wearing motives on consumer attitudes and consuming-behaviors. Date were collected by questionnaire from 443 collegiate students between August and September of 2000, and 396 questionnaires were analyzed. 3 groups were identified on the basis of clothing-wearing motives and named by extroversion group, introversion group, and least clothing-congnizing group respectively. This supported the qualitative results in part, especially in the direction of motives. Clothing utility-reduction factors were identified as appearance demage, social-psychological damage, and abandonment-causing damage. The 3 groups were responded on utility-reduction differently, thus clothing-wearing motive variable was determined as useful in fashion marketing.
Consumer Segmentation of Clothing Products by Fashion Conformity/Innovativeness and Their Reference Groups
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 25, issue 7, 2001, Pages 1341~1352
When segmenting consumers according to their fashion adoption behavior, it has been assumed that consumers' fashion conformity and innovativeness characteritics are negatively correlated. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between conformity and innovativeness and that these two attributes exist independently. The research problems of this study were to segment consumers according to the degrees of conformity and innovativeness, and to identify differences in reference groups and clothing purchasing behavior among the segments. The results of the empirical study showed that the fashion conformity and innovativeness were in and innovativeness; High conformity/High innovativeness group(HC/HI), High conformity/Low innovativeness group (HC/LI), Low conformity/High innovativeness group(LC/HI?, and Low conformity/Low innovativeness group (LC/LI). When the groups were compared in their reference groups and purchasing behavior, it was found out that HC groups were more influenced by reference groups than LC groups. When HC/LI and HC/HI groups were compared, HC/LI group was more influenced by their parents and siblings, while HC/HI group was more influenced by upper class and celebrities. Both groups were mostly influenced by friends and desirable passengers on the street. Friends and passengers were most influential to LC groups also, even though they were less influenced than HC groups. In conclusion, the fashion conformity and innovativeness were found to exist in different dimensions consisting dual structure. Thus, retailers and marketers can make their strategies more successfully if they use these two characteristics separately when segmenting consumers.
Consumer Satisfaction/Dissatisfaction Factors for Internet Fashion Shopping Malls
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 25, issue 7, 2001, Pages 1353~1364
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the factors influencing the extent of satisfaction/dissatisfaction for the internet fashion shopping malls. Data were collected through a self-administered questionnaire survey from 503 netizen through internet by using the server of ECMiner Research Company. Data were analyzed by factor analysis, one-way ANOVA and Duncan's multiple range test. Regarding the satisfaction/dissatisfaction with internet shopping mall, 5 factors were found. Netizens wee divided into 3 groups based on purchase experiences: the less-purchased(1-6 times) the more-purchased(above 7 times) and the not-purchased. The respondents tended to be dissatisfied with the 5 factors. The more they purchased experiences through internet, the more satisfied they were with convenience of shopping and after-sales service factors. Gender and age were the factors influencing the most on the satisfaction/dissatisfaction with the internet shopping malls for the not-purchased. However, for the groups with purchase experiences, experiences, evaluative criteria for selecting shopping malls, the number of hours using internet per week, and the extent of experiences of using internet were the main variables.
