The Future Is Here

Amongst the sea of newcomers cascading down fashion's runways throughout the Spring/Summer 2013 season was a new wave of Asian models whose diverse beauty represents the industry's changing perception of Asian beauty. Chinese Vogue casts the spotlight on the cream of Asian modelling talent with photographer Amy Troost capturing red hot newcomers Tian Yi, Chiharu Okunigi, Ji Hye Park and Sung Hee Kim in the season's finery with a slight masculine edge. Chinese newcomer Tian Yi was one of the most in demand faces of the Spring/Summer 2013 season, amassing an incredulous 65 show tally which included appearances at Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen and Louis Vuitton. Casting director Ashley Brokaw granted Japan's Chiharu Okunugi the ultimate seal of exclusivity with turns at Prada, Balenciaga and Miu Miu. Showcasing the full spectrum of Asian beauty were South Korean models Ji Hye Park and Sung Hee Kim, who made an indelible impact with their angular lines and sophisticated beauty via their appearances in 28 and 19 shows respectively. All signs so far point towards greater visibility of Asian models with Sung Hee Kim landing Miu Miu's Resort 2013 campaign, and Tian Yi and Ji Hye Park causing double trouble in Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 2013 campaign lensed by Steven Meisel.
