Tirithna asked Brandon Sanderson:

Does Shardplate have one general style as a pattern, or do different types exist (like European armour vs. japanese armour), as the different kingdoms have different cultures?

Brandon Sanderson Different types exist, but it's more along order lines than cultural ones. (That said, a person's culture could certainly influence their armor.)
