The Armani Privé Fall 2011 Couture show beautifully paid tribute to the people of Japan who were affected by the tragic earthquake in March. The collection was a personal one for Giorgio Armani, who has been supporting a UNESCO scholarship program that has been helping children who were harmed by the natural disaster.

With Oriental-style prints, origami-inspired folds and pleats in the clothing, the Armani Privé collection's Japanese influence is hard to deny. The models also wore intricate, bowlike headpieces by world-famous hat designer Philip Treacy.

While the collection will surely instill in fans and fashion-lovers all around the world a desire to incorporate Asian-inspired pieces into their wardrobes, the show is not just about the clothing, but it is an emotional experience and touching tribute as well.
