Below is a video of a program called “Asian American Life” that aired on CUNY TV on October 10, 2013. I appear in clips about the work of fashion blogging. While the show just aired, my bit was recorded in June after a panel discussion Mimi and I were a part of about race, fashion, and economies at the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA).
One response to ““Asian Americans in Fashion” on CUNY TV”
Thank you for the post. It is great to see learn more about successful entrepreneurs of Asian descent. In my work I have been extremely inspired by Yeohlee Teng and Issey Miyake, especially because of their creative approaches to no waste design, and their play of space and dimension. I’m an apparel design student at Cornell right now, but I did my undergraduate work at UC Davis in California where most of my fashion senior class was Asian. Some of them were Asian-American and some were international students. It was great to be in this environment because I got to learn more about diverse cultural design aesthetics (especially since some students did collections inspired by their Hmong ethnicity, or Pakistani architecture). Their work was very strong, and I was also glad to see some of the students receive grants from the university to create their collections.
