As part of AAPI Heritage Month, OAPIA will be hosting a lively panel discussion focused on prominent and rising Asian American and Pacific Islander fashion designers. This panel discussion will explore how the designers became interested in the fashion industry, what their struggles were, and if their AAPI identity has played a role in their work.
The event will also feature short presentations by each fashion designer where they will present some of their most favorite pieces adorned by models. RSVP now for this exclusive look into their thought process on how timeless pieces are made for women and men.
