The Rise of the East: Top 5 Asian Brands for Your Fashion Needs
The timeless Chanel, the fan-favorite Louis Vuitton, the classy Christian Dior, and the minimalist Prada, have been a part of the fashionistas' closet for years. These brands have already proven themselves as classic contenders for luxury brands. Fashion, however, will not be fashion if there aren't some disruptions going on.
Recently, Asian brands have been making a statement in the fashion industry with their fresh take on streetwear, casual attires, and even accessories that capture the vibrance and the uniqueness of their customers and sets new trends in the industry.
As Asian brands continue to dominate the fashion world, here are some fashion lines that you should look out for your next shopping trip!

Rokh, South Korea
Rokh is a fashion brand that highlights women's masculinity. The brand's products are characterized by styles that give off rawness, imperfection, and adolescence's uniqueness. From uneven skirts to cut-open sleeves and twisted hemlines, Rokh harmoniously mixes the elements of music, performance, imagery and photography into another form of art--fashion.

Reinvention and sustainability--these are two words to describe Doodlage. Doodlage is an Indian fashion brand that is currently making waves for its high-fashion and eco-friendly clothes. What's unique about this brand is the individual identity of its clothes; no two garments are the same as raw materials used for the clothes' creation are always different.

Far from the bold prints and the rawness of previous brands is Japan's Enfold, a minimalist clothing brand focused on creating a lasting wardrobe instead of a seasonal one. Apart from ensuring that you can wear their clothes all year round, Enfold also guarantees comfort as they craft clothes that allow smooth and ample movement for their customers.
