A three day International Fashion Fair kicked off in Japan on Wednesday. The opening show featured up-and-coming designers from Japan, China and four other Asian nations.

Opening the show was Japanese designer Yasutoshi Ezumi, who says his geometric creations are inspired from the laws of nature. Ezumi’s designs will be making their foreign sales debut in Hong Kong next month and in Paris later this year. He says the rapid rise of Asian fashion and the expansion of the Asian market means Japanese designers need to push harder:

Yasutoshi Ezumi, Japanese designer, said, "Japan has to keep trying on, to be more aggressive for the design and market as well."

Haute couture tinged with tradition was a key theme for many other designers, including China’s Zhang Zhifeng, whose evening collection fused traditional Chinese embroidery and textiles with western designs. Zhang says the recent changes that have taken place in China have created a much better environment for Chinese designers looking to expand abroad.

Zhang Zhifeng, Chinese designer, said, "I think the next ten years will be easier compared to the previous ten years. China has opened up completely and is gaining attention from all over the world. This also has a significant impact for our brand."

Vietnam’s evening gowns glittered with embroidery and flowing drapes of silk, chiffon and organza, while Thailand’s designs featured pastel dresses embroidered with sequins and bird-themed head-dresses.

Also on the show were designers from South Korea and Singapore.
