Modern Geisha Fashion

Zip Magazine's Latest Exclusive is a Tribute to Japanese Styling

— June 25, 2015 — Fashion
Models August Zhang, Lili Zhang and Rosa channel modern Geisha muses in Zip Magazine's conceptual image series. Rather than sporting traditional garb, the girls don sportswear and couture staples by a number of independent and established labels.

Photographer Man Tsang captures the models against a brightly colored backdrop and experiments with fun props like flower petals and tree branches. Styling for this modern Geisha editorial is courtesy of Anson Lau who dresses August, Lili and Rosa in pieces that defy convention.

Zip Magazine's edgy editorial is a contemporary homage to Japanese styling and features sleek hair looks by Seifert Cheung. The image series' makeup is kept bold and traditional and is created by Marian Woo. Pushing boundaries, editorials like this one feature conceptual elements that are used to reinvent a cultural inspiration.
Trend Themes
1. Contemporary Cultural Tribute - There is potential for the fashion industry to create more modern tributes to traditional cultures and fashion styles.
2. Sportswear Couture Fusion - The fusion of sportswear and couture could be a disruptive innovation in the fashion industry.

Industry Implications
