The article features various Japanese and Chinese traditional fashion designs. Japanese design motifs were interpreted with some success, but did not inspire any radical changes in the prevailing fashion esthetic for most of the Belle Epoque. Among the Japanese favorites were large scale designs and bold geometrics, which had a great impact on the Art Deco design vocabulary. Moreover, the origins of the Chinese influence on western fashion can be traced in 1911, when the Quing dynasty was toppled by the growing republican movement.
