Thus far, 2023 has been a year filled with exciting fashion news and compelling style moments featuring Asian stars. The first half of the year saw the fashion industry turning its eyes to Asia with a myriad of ambassadorship announcements and special events, including Dior’s first showing in India and Louis Vuitton and Gucci’s stopovers in South Korea.
