The Asian Fashion Archive is a digital resource project, which highlights Asian fashion, culture, and history.
One of the main reasons why I started this account was because of the anti-Asian racism I experienced and witnessed in 2020. I felt very angry and alone.
During this time I was finishing up graduate school, where I was studying the relationship between the East and the West in fashion, art, and popular culture. I was growing more frustrated with the lack of Asian representation and negative portrayals of Asian people in Western media and fashion.
Using my professional and academic background, I wanted to highlight the diverse range of Asian cultures depicted in positive and beautiful lights. By sharing these resources, I likewise hope to inspire, empower, and educate others.
