March of the Asian designers: Peter Som, Jason Wu and Prabal Gurung

I remember reading an article last year about the rise of Asian designers, given that several of the hot new faces were from the continent. These three designers were three of the main ones listed and they're still going strong.

Peter Som is actually American, but was born to Han Chinese parents. I seriously think he's one of the best at structure. It seems so many designers try to create billowy looks, but you can tell this guy puts a lot of thought into how everything will look on the wearer. Beautiful pieces.

Jason Wu became famous for designing Michelle Obama's inauguration dress, which was a gorgeous piece. He still creates beautiful work. This collection is full of sophisticated, "modern lady" silhouettes, almost any of which I could imagine the FLOTUS wearing.

Prabal Gurung has been getting his fair amount of attention lately. He was recently featured in a Graduate-like photo spread with fellow designer Diane von! As beautiful as he is, he also makes beautiful clothes. I love the details and fabric-play that he exhibits in this collection.
