Asia is an emerging powerhouse in the fashion world, as exemplified by the growing lineup of up-and-coming designers and eponymous fashion weeks held in the region. Of course, it goes without saying that we have our own fair share of influential women who dominate the industry.
This is no easy feat, considering how the creative industry in Asia is still a lot less developed and valued compared to that in the West. However, certain women have proven that they have what it takes to be even more powerful than their male counterparts. Especially when it comes to fashion design, women have taken over the reins to pursue their passions in fashion, and they are certainly not to be trifled with. From budding to established designers, we’re glad female designers are gaining prominent success in the region.
Of course, it’s almost impossible to list all the amazing designers in Asia. But since we had to choose, here are 5 women who have proven to the world that Asian women do not always take the backseat when it comes to being on top in the fashion world. Go, girl power!
