In the world of fashion one of the fastest growing segments is Asian fashion. This is due to several reasons not the least of which is the timeless appeal of many the styles and fabrics that come from countries such as China, India, Korea, and Japan. While designs from Asia has always been a part of the fashion world, today we find it reaching a much broader market and becoming more entrenched in the everyday designs we see and wear. These large and burgeoning markets are home to some of the world’s favorite designers. They are also manufacturing centers for not just Asian fashion but clothing makers from around the world.
In the past most Asian fashion houses have focused on the local market. This meant higher prices both domestically and abroad. Now, however, many designers are taking advantage of advances in communication and distribution to expand their reach to the rest of the world. Prices have fallen and Asian fashion styles are becoming more and more popular throughout the world. Little known designers from places like Korea and Hong Kong are just beginning to look to exports for growth.
No matter where you are in the world you can already see the impact on the growth of the Asian fashion industry in your local stores. The Asian influence can be seen in clothing lines from high end women’s wear to everyday junior casual. Japanese styles such as the school girl look are popular for teens and the younger set while Indian influenced styles can be seen in trendy chic boutiques. In fact, the Indian look is now popular not just for its colorful fabrics and comfortable styling, but as part of the retro trend. Korean street fashion can be found wherever trendy or hip hop styles are sold.
