Givenchy Haute Couture Features All Asian Models

Asian models are in the forefront of luxury casting once again.

Givenchy‘s Haute Couture collection was shown in Paris last week and featured only Asian models, including Ming Xi, Fei Fei Sun, Liu Wen, Shu Pei Qin, Du Juan, Ai Tominaga, and Tao Okamoto.

The ten-dress collection was inspired by the Japanese Butoh dancer Kazou Ohno and the headpieces came from Japanese Goldrake robots.

Givenchy Creative Director Riccardo Tisci’s “imagination produced the most slender and delicate dresses, using Japanese cranes as symbols and abstractions of an obi sash in leather. With strikingly contrasting backs that might be fuchsia bright compared to a barely tinted front, or with tiny pearls covered with silk, these dresses were works of art — one requiring 4,000 hours of handwork,” raves Suzy Menkes of the International Herald Tribune.
