You can easily see the resemblance here:

ArturiaViolet + Ahoge

On the left: Saber from Fate/Stay Night, on the right: Violet Evergarden

And her usual blue outfit is somewhat similar to saber

Saber BlueViolet Evergarden

On top: Saber from Carnival Phantasm, on bottom: Violet Evergarden

Note that the original violet didn't have the ahoge, it's edited on her first picture here with her blue necktie. So is Violet design inspired by Saber from Fate Series here?

    well, you will find a lot of very similar characters in totally unrelated anime... I don't think there is a way to really confirm if the similarities are intentional – TheFlow0360 Feb 2 '18 at 8:50

    I have done a prior research in Japanese, only to find Japanese fans expressing the same opinion, but there's no official statement whatsoever until now. – Aki Tanaka Feb 13 '18 at 6:50

Yeah, Violet is probably inspired by Saber. I sort of have proof:

  1. They look exactly alike.
  2. They were both involved in a war.
  3. If you think about it, Gilbert is Violet's version of Shirou because of how much he means to her.
  4. They are both badass
