Centrality of Visual Product Aesthetics: The Relationships with Innovativeness and Consumer Independent Judgment Making
Park, Hye-Jung ; Jeon, Kyung-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 35, issue 10, 2011, Pages 1139~1149
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2011.35.10.1139
This study tested the validity of a three-factor model of the centrality of visual product aesthetics developed by Bloch, Brunel, and Arnold (2003) and explored the relationships between the centrality of visual product aesthetics and the relevant constructs. It was hypothesized that the path relationships including innovativeness and consumer independent judgment making are relevant constructs of the centrality of visual product aesthetics. Data were gathered by surveying university students in the Seoul metropolitan area (using convenience sampling) and 322 questionnaires were used in the statistical analysis. Correlation analysis, factor analysis, and regression analysis were conducted to analyze the data. The findings show the validity of the three factors (value, acumen, and response intensity) of the centrality of visual product aesthetics. Tests of the hypothesized path show that innovativeness influences the centrality of visual product aesthetics both directly and indirectly through consumer independent judgment making. Innovativeness positively influenced consumer independent judgment making and the three factors of the centrality of visual product aesthetics, whereas consumer independent judgment negatively influences the response intensity factor of the centrality of visual product aesthetics. The implications of these findings and suggestions for future study are also discussed.

This study investigates i) the effect of salesperson`s self efficacy and work overload on emotional labor and ii) the mediating role of emotion. A survey questionnaire is developed and implemented on salespersons working in the fashion retail stores of department stores. The measurement scales are composed of emotional labor, self efficacy, work overload and emotion. A total of 112 responses are analyzed by confirmatory factor analysis and a structural equation model with AMOS18.0. The results are as follows. Firstly, self efficacy has direct effect on both deep acting and surface acting of emotional labor without the mediating effect of emotion. Self efficacy has a positive effect on deep acting. Secondly, work overload has a negative effect on emotion. Job emotion has positive effect on deep acting and it has a negative effect on surface acting. Thirdly, emotion has a significant mediating effect between work overload and emotional labor. Finally, implications for personal management and job design in the fashion retail organizations are suggested.
Semiotic Analysis and Myth Studies of Madonna Fashion Images -A View Fashion Image from the Year of 2005 to 2011-
Park, Young-Jin ; Yim, Eun-Hyuk ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 35, issue 10, 2011, Pages 1161~1174
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2011.35.10.1161
An approach method of the semiotics theory is analyzing fashion: the look is that a sign represents one character and the image is interpreted as the destination of the changes. The fashion image interpretation by semiotics is possible because the fashion phenomenon by society has been accumulated in their abbreviation code. It is not possible to produce contradictions of the human imagination coined solution. The myth relieved to people, allowanced a meaning in the world and explained it have been unable to explain and protect us. Today`s role of the world myth becomes the star`s future. Public resting star`s fashion image analysis promote that we understand the inherent desire. Madonna probably is one of the world`s most famous women. To Create Madonna`s own mythology staged image in various attire reveals symbolism. In this study, Madonna`s fashion images, the myth 8 analysis of semiotics represent publicity. Madonna`s album jacket 8 analysis of the myth. The fit and the relationship between the star and myths closely is obvious. The Madonna fashion image investigate that so forth implied myth into duality of feminine, upset of gender roles, upset of sexual roles, object of worship. In addition to the creation of these myths are based on sensuality heterosexual fashion images, body-conscious look, lingerie look, Androgynous Look, Dominatrix Look in the fashion style of the images, fashion items made to body suit, bra top, black panties, black boots, long gloves, pink, red, gold, satin, and leather; the addition, there are exaggerated props and accessories. These use such as the human body building wave blond hair. This study through Madonna`s fashion image, semiotics analysis is acquainted with suitable means of myth.

Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 35, issue 10, 2011, Pages 1175~1187
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2011.35.10.1175
This study investigates the wearing conditions and satisfaction level of middle school boys` uniforms. The subjects for the survey were 626 male students from 9 middle schools in Seoul. Data were analyzed using the SPSS 14.0 program. The results of this study are as follows; 1) When purchasing school uniforms, students considered the comfort and the fit important. Student considered importantly the shoulder width of jacket, the shirt length and the sleeve length of shirt, and the pant length and the pant width of pants. 2) Most of students purchased one size bigger school uniforms because they need to wear school uniforms for three years. About 80% of students had difficulties in understanding the meaning of size label, and this made it difficult to select the right size of school uniforms even if they knew their body size exactly. 3) About 10% of students repurchased school uniforms because their school uniforms did not fit any more. The periods of repurchase were the 1st grade 2nd semester and the 2nd grade 1st semester. 4) The waist circumference of pants and the pant width were evaluated larger and the pant length was evaluated to be longer (36.6% of students evaluated that the pant length was longer). Compared to 2nd grade and 3rd grade, the freshman felt that school uniforms were bigger. 5) 44.9% of students had the experience of repairing their school uniforms. The most frequent reason for repair was that the size of school uniforms did not fit well. 202 students repaired the pant length and 86.1% of them reduced their pant length.

Kim, Sun-Young ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 35, issue 10, 2011, Pages 1188~1198
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2011.35.10.1188
This study proposes the use of firework shapes to design fashion accessories in the judgment that they are appropriate for the expression of creative images in consideration of the display of fireworks as a kind of entertainment and a festive symbol. This study promotes the sustainable application of firework shapes to develop the designs of fashion culture items that feature a distinctive personality and uniqueness. In this present study, the proposed fashion accessory design was intended to create an entertaining new atmosphere that uses an Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) that draws attention as a futuristic display. In terms of methodology, a literature review of firework shapes and OLED was conducted; in addition, Adobe Illustrator CS2 and Adobe Photoshop CS2 were used to develop six different standard motive designs with formative design elements represented by a variety of firework shapes. Each of the six motifs was further expanded with different color combinations. Rich images are produced with the use of pink, blue, purple, green, yellow, orange, and red, in conjunction with various OLED effects to express the three-dimensional images of fireworks. The motifs are applied to three types of items: bags, bracelets, and necklaces. For the video images, evening and tote bags, pendants, and bangles were used. Shifting images and lights should produce unique images as well as satisfy the consumer desire for entertainment. The Adobe Image Ready software was used to present the motive of fireworks applied to the design of fashion accessories in video images but not in still-cut images due to physical constraints of this paper.
A Comparative Study on Fashion Design Education in Europe and Korea -Focus on the Educational Cases in the UK, France, Italy and Korea-
Choi, Kyung-Hee ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 35, issue 10, 2011, Pages 1199~1214
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2011.35.10.1199
This study suggests the direction of fashion design education suitable for Korea by comparing the fashion design educational systems and the curricula of the main fashion institutions in Europe and those of some universities in Korea. For this, 6 fashion schools in UK, France and Italy and 12 four-year-course universities in Korea were sellected. At first, the educational systems of the nations above and the information about the selected institutions were examined through literature reviews. Then, case studies were performed about the curricula and the other characteristics of the selected fashion design courses by each website or leaflet as well as additional interviews with their course directors or graduates. The results of this study are as follow: First, Korean fashion design education system needs to be specialized and subdivided with a curriculum centered on fashion design. Second, a foundation course needs to be developed to raise a broad and creative approach for design as well as to discover each student`s aptitude. Third, the curricula about design process and research methodology need to raise a problem-solving individual of ability. Fourth, a project-based fashion design education is required by a specialized education as well as multi-disciplinary programs. Fifth, an industry- related and market-based fashion design education is asked through internships, professional teaching staff, industry-sponsored projects, seminars and professional design critics. Sixth, English and technology needs to be added to the curricula to develop global professionals. Finally, a cultural fashion design education based on Korean identity is required to develop the Korean fashion industry into a higher value-added business.
Idealization of the Body in Fashion -Focus on Skinny Jeans as an Externalized Corset-
Yim, Eun-Hyuk ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 35, issue 10, 2011, Pages 1215~1227
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2011.35.10.1215
The recent craze for so-called skinny jeans is illustrative of the restraint of the body through dress. This phenomenon is noteworthy when considering the internalization of the corset in contemporary fashion. Grown out of the garments of soundly practical use, blue jeans have led the stream of fashion for about 150 years and now they serve as the new corset idealizing the female body in the form of skinny jeans. This study intends to examine the idealization of the body in contemporary fashion and focus on skinny jeans as an externalized corset. The struggle with corsets continues in that the real body is overwhelmed by fashion items. In the aspect of idealizing the body by constraining the body parts, skinny jeans externalize the control of the body as contemporary corsets. This study conducts literature research and content analysis as the method of investigation and focuses on women`s fashion from the 20th century. Exerting a harmful influence on health (as corsets have done) the body in skinny jeans is regarded as a modifiable entity. The thinness of the body achieved by skinny jeans suggests the controlling power over the body. Moreover, this gives access to the power presented by the contemporary ideal of thinness. Skinny jeans are modern day glass slippers.
Analysis of Amur Cork Tree Extract and Dyed Silk upon Thermal Degradation Treatment
Ahn, Cheun-Soon ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 35, issue 10, 2011, Pages 1228~1241
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2011.35.10.1228
This research compares the change in berberine content in liquid dye and the color and dye uptake of amur cork tree dyed silk upon thermal degradation treatment. Thermal degradation of amur cork tree extract and liquid dye of standard berberine was carried out at room temperature,
oven conditions for 0-192 hours. Amur cork tree dyed silk was treated in a
oven for 0-240 hours. The berberine content in liquid dye was measured by the relative abundance of the berberine peak in the HPLC-MS chromatograms. The color and dye uptake of dyed silk was measured using K/S value and colorimetric data. The berberine content in standard berberine dye was 2.4 times that of the amur cork tree extract. A similar result was observed between the K/S value of standard berberine dyed silk and that of amur cork tree dyed silk. The berberine dyed silk showed the highest dye uptake after 120 hours in a
oven. This result was similar to the change in a berberine content in liquid dye in a
oven treatment. The change of the K/S value of amur cork tree dyed silk and berberine content of amur cork tree extract was similar up to 24 hours. The result suggests that there is a direct relationship between the color change of amur cork tree dyed silk and the berberine content in amur cork tree dye.
Effects of Mixed Characteristics of Oily Soil on Detergency of PET Fabric in Oily/Particulate Soil Mixed System
Kang, In-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 35, issue 10, 2011, Pages 1242~1251
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2011.35.10.1242
This study investigates the effect of mixed characteristics of oily soil such as mixed ratio, polarity of oily soil on contact angle of fabric, removal of oily and particulate soil from PET fabric in oily/particulate soil mixed system. The contact angle of fabric in the surfactant solution with suspended oily soil was examined as a fundamental environment of detergency of soil from fabrics. Detergency was investigated as function of mixed ratios of oily/ particulate soil, type of oily soil, surfactants concentration, surfactant type and temperature of detergency in surfactant solution. The contact angle of fabric in surfactant solution sharply increased with mixing nonpolar oily soil; in addition, the contact angle slightly increased with increasing contents of oily soil and decreased with increasing surfactant concentration. The removal of oily and particulate soil from fabric was higher in the solution mixed with polar versus nonpolar oily soil. The detergency increased with increasing surfactant concentration and the increased temperature of surfactants solution that were relatively improved in NPE compared to DBS solutions, The results indicated that the detergency of oily and particulate soil showed a similar trend in oily/ particulate mixed soil systems. The general contact angle of fabric was well related with the detergency of oily and particulate soil in oily/particulate mixed soil system, therefore, the primary factor determining the detergency of soil in oily/particulate mixed soil system may be the contact angle of fabric caused by wettability.

Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 35, issue 10, 2011, Pages 1252~1263
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2011.35.10.1252
This study examined the current state of snowboarding apparel. We investigated the preferred design, the required functions, and inconvenient factors in snowboard apparel through interviews with snowboard pro-players and questionnaires with functional apparel consumers. The research was conducted as follows. In order to raise problems through interviews with pro-snowboarders and grasp the individual traits of consumers, a survey was conducted with male and female consumers in their 20s-30s who enjoy snowboarding and those who had purchased specialized brand snowboarding apparel more than once. After the survey with consumers, this study set the classification standard for snowboard maniacs according to snowboarding frequency and classified the snowboarders into two groups. Both groups carry MP3 players most frequently in ordinary times and they preferred notable and brilliant colors and partially-used patterns (printed patterns). Through the investigation of the mobile functions that the snowboarders wanted for snowboarding apparel, it was found that the most preferred functions were those of listening to music and photo/video image-taking.
Laccase Treatment on Polyamide Fabrics
Seo, Hye-Young ; Kim, Hye-Rim ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Clothing and Textiles, volume 35, issue 10, 2011, Pages 1264~1270
DOI : 10.5850/JKSCT.2011.35.10.1264
This study is to optimize the conditions for the treatment of polyamide fabrics using laccase. The pH, temperature, treatment time, and concentration were varied; their effects were evaluated by measuring the number of primary amide groups by the uptake of an acid dye measured by K/S of dyed polyamide fibers. The hydrophilicity of the fabrics was evaluated in terms of moisture regain and wettability. The effects of the mediator, ABTS, on the laccase activity were also evaluated. The optimal treatment conditions were identified as a pH of 4.5, temperature of
, treatment time of 6 hours, and concentration of 10% of the weight of the fabric (o.w.f.). ABTS facilitated the activity of laccase on the polyamide fabrics. Voids and cracks on the surfaces of the laccase-treated polyamide fabrics were responsible for improved wettability. The results proved that laccase treatment improved the hydrophilicity of polyamide fibers without decreasing their strength.
