The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience is now holding an exhibit on fashion. Titled “Fashion: Workroom to Runway”, the exhibit highlights the many ways in which Asians have contributed to the growing fashion industry. The exhibit not only shares personal stories from early sewing schools and garment workers, it even showcases designers and professionals including Gei Chan, Banchong Douangphrachanh, Harold Koda, Hisako Nakaya, Josie Natori, Maiden Noir, Malia Peoples, Andy South, Chrissy Wai-Ching, and Luly Yang. Visitors will get an in-depth look into the creative process behind these designs and learn about issues on stereotypes, labor, and the ideals of beauty.

Did you know that we’re now entering our tenth year as a publication? Over the past nine years, we’ve featured numerous stories for and on the modern Asian American woman by covering the Asian American pop culture landscape, dishing out on the up-and-coming hot spots around America (and Asia!), and giving you the latest fashion and beauty trends off the runways. One of the best parts about working at Audrey is being able to personally connect with our audience as they have shared some of their experiences with us.
However, we all decided that Audrey did not some change – in fact, a brand new look. Don’t worry – despite all these changes, we assure that at the core, Audrey will always remain the magazine that strives to empower many Asian American women of all generations.
The cover girl for the Fall issue is also no stranger to Audrey. She’s a fierce, rising young starlet- and undeniably, one of the busiest Asian American women actresses in Hollywood. Think you know who it is? Click on to find out and see the new look of Audrey Magazine.

The runway served as a platform to three swimwear lines: Eclat Swimwear, Culture Swimwear, and Maui and Sons. While The Standard’s very L.A. décor of white leather sofas and palm tree leaves growing out of white marbles was the perfect backdrop for a swimsuit fashion show, it was the beautiful, tan guests; fruity cocktails; and the big, poolside umbrellas that made it feel like it was first day of summer.
