OUR STORY

AANHPIs are not well-represented in the mainstream fashion industry, from print ads to commercials, to runways. We're shifting the status quo.


We're a fashion show that promotes AAPIs in the fashion industry. Our show consists of 100% AAPI designers and 100% AAPI models. Founded in 2019. Operated by Chicago Asian Women Empowerment.

But we are more than just a fashion show. We are a space where AANHPI faces can be recognized and celebrated. Our models and designers represent the diversity of the AANHPI community in background, ethnicity, body type, height, skin tone, and more. Our show is a place for our community to celebrate, to make a statement, to heal, and to take space. We will be heard and our creativity will be expressed. We are proud to be AANHPIs in fashion.

Annual Chi-AWE corporate membership includes sponsorship benefits for Miss Asian Chicago and Asian Fashion Show Chicago, ad space in our magazine, among other benefits. Learn more!
