Asian Faces In High Fashion
Disclaimer : I apologize ahead of time that this post might seem off topic and that it's rather large. Mods, please delete it if you like, I won't be offended.


These are the top Asian faces in today's High Fashion. By Top I mean that they have done extensive editorial, runway, and campaign work going for them. They are the visible faces of how Asians are represented in the fashion industry. Ai is probably the most visible with Ujjwala running second. Bai Ling is rumored to be branching out into acting and it figures since she's been in the business close to 8 years or so. Korean model Kae bears a strikng resemblance to the Siberian model of the mid 90's, Irina Pantaeva who is now an actress.



L to R : 1) Ai Tominaga (Japan), 2) Kae (Korea)



3) Bai Ling (Cambodia), 3) Ujjwala (India)

Then there is Ujjwala. The first Indian model to ever make it internationally. You can count Yasmeen Ghauri, of which she has been compared to as the absolute first south asian model but she was Pakistani-German and has long been retired from modeling. There is also a new Asian model in the D&G ads named Rila Fukushima. Could the Japanese doll look be a phase or a definite trend that's here to stay? Only time will tell. Whatever the case may be, Asian faces do not feature prominently in the fashion industry. Perhaps in the future that might change, but for now let's hope we can see more of the Asian models that we do have on the runways.

I also hope that designers like Versace, Prada, and Alberta Ferretti will include more Asian faces in the seasons to come. Thanks for letting me vent. :bunny:

Double checked Vogue, WWD and The Impression for the last of New York shows - it's possible that a show or some have not been reviewed. Will revisit lists later once fashion month is over. Or voice/post any shows that haven't been.


Obviously there are minor mistakes (like names on wrong models and models closing shows, which did not) and typos here and there, can't fix them right now, but am aware of them.


Hopefully the many UNKNOWN models will be identified later (maybe not all, but most). Or help out in ID'ing.


Lastly, perhaps some models aren't Asian or aren't models? That I personally won't know definitively... just doing what's in front and available for the time being.


Overall a lot of these things should be fixed and corrected once if a season's report should be made.


Thanks for understanding and welcome!
