'Orientalismo' is a gorgeous Asian-inspired editorial shot by photographer Fabio Piemonte and styled by Kristina Sevostyanova. The photo set features a model wearing a variety of modern minidresses with folding fans and delicate umbrellas to accentuate each look.

We've seen a number of gorgeous Asian-inspired fashions. Check out some of my favorites below.
