The purpose of this study is to propose application methods for the globalization of Korean Uniforms. This study examined the Korean uniforms currently at home and abroad, and focused on the development and usage of uniforms that promoted the Korean image. Study results have shown that a variety of Korean uniform design have been developed through contests, design research. Even though these designs are being sold, its use has been limited. The most popular uniforms worn in Korean restaurants do not reflect the latest fashion trend. In order to utilize and globalize Korean uniform design, following steps need to be taken: first, the communication between uniform designers, researchers developing the Korean uniform design and uniform users needs to exist. Second, Korean uniforms should be utilized in more diverse and effective areas to better promote the Korean image. Third, a platform that has access to a design database needs to be produced to utilize the already developed designs and pay royalties.
