I’m not sure how much the NYC uses it, but have you tried Yelp? I was able to find a number of shops through them for a qipao in my area. I’d personally go wander ktown and see if there are any dress shops and go in and inquire. Perhaps while there ask someone on the street? They will probably be able to help. If you have any Korean friends definitely bring them with you.

Hmm that’s the only area in nyc where I would go too. That’s where we went for all things Korean for a cousin’s wedding. Only other area I can think of is in Jersey 🙁 Maybe you can also try popping into a dduk place and ask their opinion. They go hand in hand with hanbok shops in a lot of instances. Hope you find a place!

Hello!  

I’m wearing a hanbok as well, and if you are open to options, I would check out this site: http://www.sonjjang-hanbok.com/

 

I actually live in Korea, so had the opportunity to visit Dew in her shop.  She spent loads of time working with what I wanted, and when I was ready to scrap an idea (bc I am just so indecisive), she was extremely patient and went with the flow.  I do know that she ships internationally, and I guess the only real advantage I had, was to see the materials in person.  But she measured me the same way that she instructs you to do on the website. When I had questions, she replied straight away, too.  🙂

I loved the way that mine came out, and the materials are great quality.  I chose more of a modernized one, but she can do so much!  Hope this helps!!
