As fashion labels see increasing opportunities for sales growth in Asian countries, they're filling up runways with Asian, and especially Chinese models. Fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan and Paris this month show a striking rise in the number of Chinese models on the runways. Now let's drop by the catwalks and take a look at the fresh faces in a sea of mostly fair-haired, blue-eyed models.

Five seasons ago, you would be hard pressed to find one show or even one season that used a Chinese girl in Milan or New York. But things are changing dramatically and quickly - Now you just wouldn't have a show without one.

Chinese models have now become a strong presence. And among those who walk the most shows is Liu Wen, who is now ranked number 5 on the Top 50 Women Models listed by Models.com.
