A growing number of young Asian-American fashion designers are taking the American fashion world by storm with their original designs influenced by their Asian heritage. Unlike the earlier wave of Japanese designers who hit the fashion world in the 1980s, however, these designers do not create clothes that can be specifically identified as Asian fashion but rather strive to create clothes that are aimed for mainstream clotheshorses by wearing their influences lightly. The most recent Asian-Americans to hit in big in US fashion are young Korean clothes designers Richard Chai and Chung Doo-Ri, who have successfully managed to establish a foothold in the highly-competitive New York fashion scene.
What makes Asian fashion so attractive to American buyers is their strong sense of style that makes them so distinct from the majority of clothes produced by American designers. One particular trend is Korean clothes in the street fashion style, which combine the best of traditional and current styles to create outfits that are totally unique and individual. Korean street fashion has become popular in shops selling the latest in trendy or hip-hop styles to the young. But fashions from a wide variety of Asian countries have become particular with America’s hip set.
If you wear Asian fashion, you have to be prepared to exude a sense of confidence in order to pull the ensemble off. Although the old saying goes that the clothes make the man, in this case it would be more accurate to say that the wearer makes the clothes. Korean clothes, in particular, require a strong attitude to be worn successfully. And when combined with the right shoes and accessories, the resulting outfit is something that is bound to be so distinctive as to be unforgettable. No wonder that Asian clothes are making a big splash, not only in America, but all over the world as well.
