The woman with the huge quiff and knowledge, Suzy Menkes, dealt in depth with the rise of Asian fashion designers for The Asian Waves in the New York Times. She focused especially on the so-called ABCS, the American Born Chinese.
The topic isn’t new but still very current. As I am sitting in my tree house writing these lines the New York Fashion Week is full steam ahead. And the increasing influence of Asian designers is apparent in New York City more than anywhere else.
Alexander Wang is said to earn revenues of more than 20 million Euros. Jason Wu dresses Michelle Obama. Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, a Tibetan and a Korean, are in the process of conquering the world with their New York store Opening Ceremony.
Should you still be craving information on The Asian Waves we recommend the documentary China – A Fashion Nation of the Future that we produced for FashionDaily.TV in the Central Saint Martins College in London.
