We are so excited to be teaming up with our friends at Retrofit Republic for a photo/video collaboration to celebrate the different faces, bodies, and voices in the Asian American community.
Asian Americans have historically been underrepresented in media and fashion spreads. On the rare occasion that they do appear, they are usually portrayed in one-dimensional and stereotypical ways.
The Asian American community is one of vibrancy and diversity, and our goal is to bring that into the spotlight. If you’re often told you’re too fat/skinny/tall/short/[fill in the blank] but refuse to let those remarks prevent you from celebrating who you are, we want to hear from you.
INTERESTING, BUT WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
Take a look at Retrofit Republic’s Fall 2011 Community Hereos Lookbook to get an idea of how we’ve integrated community and fashion in the past.
