who we are

AAPIs 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.

But we are more than just a fashion show. We are a space where AAPI faces can be recognized and celebrated. Our models and designers represent the diversity of the AAPI community in background, ethnicity, body type, height, skintone, 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 AAPIs in fashion.
