Last year, Takuya Kimura and Lin Chi-ling acted as event ambassadors, and the event featured participation from key Asian personalities Jolin Tsai, BoA and other artists and Asian models from Taipei and Vietnam who represent the future Asia. There was also participation from Yamada, Tina Tamashiro and AMIAYA from Japan who have also been attracting attention overseas. From Japan, architect Kengo Kuma and Toshiyuki Inoko from the art technology field received awards to honor the achievements from Asia to the world.

Specially referring to the relationship between “ASIA FASHION AWARD” and South East Asia, Vietnamese top model Lan Khue was on the same stage as South Korea’s CL in 2017.

Announcing the main event visual expressing “Think One Asia”!
Not only performers, but everyone who participates in “ASIA FASHION AWARD” from visitors to supporting companies will be excited and stimulated by the event, which continues to grow to give its participants a feel of the power of Asia from its multifaceted opportunities for exchange. From this year, the ASIA FASHION AWARD Executive Committee has set “Think One Asia” as its slogan. As people have more and more opportunities to think about Asia both in the private and business aspects, the slogan includes the concept of making opportunities to more deeply experience Asia first-hand.
The main visuals include collaborations by Japan’s top creators gaining attention around the world, and will include the photographs of Mika Ninagawa, who is loved not only as a photographer but also as a film director both in Japan and globally, and design by the graphic artist YOSHIROTEN, who has been active both in Japan and overseas with successful solo exhibitions in London and Berlin, and who last year held a large-scale solo exhibition in a 1300 m2 -space with great success. These visuals were created based on the “one pillar” concept of “Connecting Asia” and “Everyone is someone in Asia”, while the main visuals were released right across Asia.
Although this year’s performers and ticket information has not yet been announced, the event will be in focus as Asia’s largest bringing together artists and leading people from all of Asia including Japan.
