Richard Chai. Prabal Gurung. Peter Som. Anna Sui. Vivienne Tam. Alexander Wang. Vera Wang. All familiar names in the fashion industry - but did you know they are all Asian-American?  The Museum of Chinese in America presents two exhibits that examines Chinese-American influence on the industry in both history and present day.

Front Row: Chinese American Designers looks at fashion designers today and interconnection between the garment district, Chinatown, and outsourcing to China. The exhibit will examine those who broke into the industry during the 1980s, like Anna Sui, and how it's grown tremendously with Michelle Obama wearing designer dresses by Prabal Gurung.

Shanghai Glamour: New Women 1910s-40s is a retrospective on the fashion during Shanghai in the 1940s. It examines the changes of fashion during the time, as well as how fashion played a key role when it came to advertising. As well as looking at the different roles women had at the time and how dress defined that role.

  2. This is an era of fashion and fashion is very influential to our lives. In fact, it adds diversity to our lives by offering an aspect of enthusiasm to strive for something new and different, otherwise it would be a monotonous life if we were supposed to dress up and act in the same manner.loose rhinestones
