Liu Wen in Alexander Wang FW12.
Ming Xi in Badgley Mischka FW12.
Twenty-two-year-old Ming Xi found a boost in her career just two years ago and now she is one of the top Chinese models. Walking for shows such as Zac Posen, Y-3 and Badgley Mischka, she is one of the most sought out Asian models both for the runway and for print.
Shu Pei in Diane von Furstenberg FW12.
Coming at a close second, Shu Pei walked almost as many shows as Liu Wen for names like Vera Wang, Michael Kors, DKNY, Herve Leger, BCBG Max Azria, J Mendel and Helmut Lang.
SO YOUNG KANG
So Young Kang in Cynthia Rowley FW12.
Making her debut runway in the US in 2010, So Young Kang now walks for over 10 shows at NYFW. This Korean model has been seen in the shows of Badgley Mischka, Cynthia Rowley, Proenza Schouler and Creatures of the Wind.
Lina Zhang in Marchesa FW12.
Chinese model Lina Zhang walked the runways of 3.1 Philip Lim, Tory Burch, Marchesa, Herve Leger, Ralph Lauren and more. That’s quite an accomplishment for a relatively newcomer; she made her debut just last year.
Sung Hee in Vivienne Tam FW12.
With so many famous Chinese models, Sung Hee is one of the few top Korean models to appear in NYFW. She walked the shows of Vivienne Tam, Tory Burch and Creatures of the Wind to name a few.
Sui He in Donna Karan FW12
I first noticed Sui He when she walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Now in the recent NYFW, she has been seen in Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Peter Som, Helmut Lang, Proenza Schouler and more.
Tian Yi in Rachel Zoe FW12.
At only 17, Tian Yi is a new, young face that we should look out for. Walking for shows such as Vivienne Tam, Rachel Zoe and Rebecca Taylor, she sure has a lot of potential to become a big name in modeling.
Xiao Wen in Jill Stuart FW12.
Last but not least, we have Xiao Wen, who’s only 19! Appearing in approximately fifteen shows, she can be seen in 3.1 Philip Lim, Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang, Jill Stuart and DKNY.
