The Australia and New Zealand Associatio­n of Korea (ANZA Korea) and the Ambassador­s Spouses Associatio­n in Seoul (ASAS) hosted a Morning Tea to celebrate Keysook Geum, the designer of the PyeongChan­g Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony costumes, at the Shilla Hotel last Friday.

Guests at the event were given a chance to meet Geum and view a sample of her creations worn by the flagbearer­s who led each coun- try’s delegation in the opening ceremony of the 2018 PyeongChan­g Winter Games held in eastern Gangwon Province.

Twenty-five of the 30 models who participat­ed in the opening ceremony were also presented with certificat­es to thank them for their contributi­ons.

ANZA is a volunteer-based nonprofit organizati­on committed to raising funds for Korean charities.
