“Power of Fashion” Asia’s supermodel Liu Wen in the Edit Magazine September 2016, lensed by Jason Kibbler, styled by Patrick Mackie

“I’m proud to be a part of something that impacts society in both significant and minute ways. The concept of a model has always been around in Asia, it was often just seen as the final act in the play that is fashion. Now there’s a stronger fascination with and fantasy around the job. I believe in the butterfly effect and I hope my small wings allow fashion to gain some understanding of Eastern tastes.
It’s through diligence that each of us can represent our culture, our gender – whichever parts of our identity – in the best way. To me, today’s [young] Asian women are working hard to pursue their ideals. We have already made a lot of progress thanks to the toil of our mothers and grandmothers, and we should desire even better for generations to come.” – Liu on modeling and women progress in Asia.
