As the Asian market becomes increasingly important to the business of fashion, so too does it become to designers. With so many of the world’s top designers, models, consumers and businesses from Asian countries and the increasing presence of China and Japan as key fashion markets, the elegant Asian-inspired trend which has been chugging along for the past few seasons is showing no sign of slowing down for Spring 2013.

The Asian inspired trend was strongest at labels such as Haider Ackermann and Prada. Ackermann showed deep hues such as black and navy on lavish and traditional Asian silhouettes. Models took to the runway in layered, belted looks with structure and sophistication. Prada, whose presence is rapidly growing in various Asian markets, paid tribute to traditional Japanese femininity. The designer showed coats embroidered with origami flowers and evoked a calm serenity that is so often associated with Asian society.

With such a colourful show of kimonos, structured judo jackets and traditional motifs for Spring 2013, fashion is sure to continue to blend cultures and draw on global inspirations well into next season.
