Since Fashion Group Hyungji launched in 1996 under the title of Crocodile Ladies and successfully formed a casual apparel market targeting women aged 30-50, we have taken a lead in the fashion industry as a general fashion company. With an exceptional high quality standard, modern-style designs and attractive prices, we have shown outstanding performances and reached an annual growth over 30%. By recording the highest sales as a single brand for women’s clothing and having the largest distribution network, Hyungji became a success story in the fashion industry.



Our Key Strength is offering top-quality clothes at lower price than others by ability to negotiate directly with home and global materials manufacturers securing them mass-volume orders at low cost.We have been developing to use various functional materials to casual clothing in order to raise its value performing of joint research as well as industry – university cooperation.
