Fall 2012 may be months away, but we, here at Audrey, can’t wait to feel the texture of wool, knits, and tweed on our skin again. This is why we’re so excited to tell you about a fall collection from the luxury brand Paul & Joe and its more affordable line Paul & Joe Sister. Our observation of what’s to come for fall trends were supported when we went through the racks of clothes from autumn collection yesterday on Robertson Blvd. We were pleased to see chunky knitted sweaters, leather bottoms and tops, cute and exotic prints, and suits filled the shiny silver racks. As well-groomed ladies came sauntering into the store, a DJ in the corner was spinning lively music while a server walked around the store holding a silver tray of hors d’oeuvres and a bartender in the back mixed pink martinis. The mood of the event was perfectly set making it easier and a more pleasant evening for us to get a sneak preview of Paul & Joe’s Autumn collection.

In previous years, Asian models and designers have been been taking large strides. For example, more than ever – we are beginning to see more Asian faces gracing the pages of the world’s top fashion magazines, walking the runways of renowned fashion designers (40% of the models walking were women of Asian descent during New York Fashion Week in February 2012), and featured in international ad campaigns for popular brands. Fashion designers of Asian descent have also been making a name for themselves, such as designer collaborations with national retail chains such as Target, H&M, and Macy’s. Follow our monthly series as we name the best of the best featuring Asians in Fashion.
Rise of South Asian Models: Vogue India‘s highlight on Alyssah Ali, Ashika Pratt, and Jessica Clarke

When Karl Lagerfield made a stunning move to feature nine (yes, NINE) models of South Asian descent in Chanel’s Pre-Fall India-themed collection last year – it was nothing short of amazing. It’s well known that Lagerfield hasn’t featured a racially diverse group of models in his previous shows. Prior to the show, Lakshmi Menon was arguably the most popular model of South Asian descent (from India). But with this move, more South Asian models are fast becoming more popular in the fashion industry. Vogue India takes a strong note of this of course, featuring three fresh faces: Alyssa Ali (Indian-Trinidian-Candian, IMG), Ashika Pratt (Indian descent from New Zealand, Anima Creatives), and Jessica Clarke (Indian-Nigerian, Marilyn) – in this lovely spread (click on the image to see more pictures from the editorial!).

He’s already been dubbed as one of Asia’s 25 greatest actors of all time and has two films releasing in September. Chinese-American Chin Han (Dark Knight) has been in the entertainment industry for more than two decades and has had his fair share of time both in front of the camera and behind the scenes as a producer. For the Winter 2011-12 issue, we’re featuring Han in the Personalities section, so be sure to check out the scoop on what Han thinks about his long run (and it’s only just beginning) as an actor and what he sees in his future. Until then, here are some snapshots of Han’s life in Hollywood.
