I don't understand why the Asian model trend has arrived so late. As an aspiring designer, I'd want to feature all kinds of beauty in my shows. (But then again, I'm all for supermodels and not animate hangers ;P)

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.




That's not true. There are a few other Indian Faces like Kirat Bhinder, Lakshmi Menon, and Padma Lakshmi.
THere are a lot more as well.
I guess, Yasmeen is the most influential as she almost hit supermodel status, but not exactly the trailblazer.

Korea has loads of very pretty and tall girls, just looking at some K-pop artists I could see quite a few I would like to see more on runways

Seems like its been quite a while since the last update. So let me revive this thread! As we all know during this amidst of FW, there have been successful emerging waves from Korean & Japanese models...

Ji Hye Park


models

Sung Hee Kim


models via Stereo_Flo

Soo Joo


beautyisboring via Stereo_Flo

Chiharu Okunugi


newyorkmodels via lanvinray

Yumi Lambert


dominiquemodels via Stereo_Flo

All of them have done amazing jobs so far. With Sung Hee Kim, Chiharu Okunugi (exclusive) & Yumi Lambert made surprise appearances at Prada, to Soo Joo at Emporio Armani & not too forget Ji Hye park who scored AW semi-exclusive to a notable appearance at Dolce & Gabbana! I hope they can continue their momentum & striving for the best at this upcoming PFW Sadly there's no any new Chinese models who made an impact this season Although i have a list of some new promising Chinese models to watch out (which i would mention it on the Chinese model's thread :p). Yeah i think this season is quite interesting to see that there are more various ethnicities apart from Chinese, dominating the runway. Oh i almost forgot mentioning Kelly Gale & Shanina Shaik who both of them are doing amazing bookings too! I wish there's more models coming out from South Asia

^ Yumi is only half Asian (Japanese exactly, and half Belgian), but she's my absolute favourite newcomer this season, she's so unique and exciting!

i love Ji Hye Park, too, gorgeous and elegant.

Yup i do aware of Yumi's mix heritage, i was just mentioning her since she's half Asian anyway She has to be the most exciting newcomer this season i must say. She's really such a standout from the crowd & nothing like any current models Ji Hye Park is another absolute sensational stunner of my fav. I love how elegantly poised & regal she is on the runway. She's just amazing
