Chinatown Pretty is prettay, prettay good

I’m super excited to share Chinatown Pretty, a photo and interview project that documents the street-style of seniors living in San Francisco’s Chinatown. For the past year, Andria Lo and my pal Valerie Luu have been schmoozing with Chinatown residents as they went about their daily routines. What they discovered was the unique fashion that is equal parts unexpected, rad and as they like to say, “not just pretty, but Chinatown Pretty.”

I’ve always known Valerie to be involved in interesting projects, but these photos and the work that went into it, going as far as enlisting Cantonese translators, is something special. If you’re in SF, it’s all coming together in an exhibition and opening reception this Friday that pairs the photos with interviews to help tell a story. Stop by for the opening or check out the exhibit before the end of February.

Make some Elbo Room for us

It’s been a minute since we last did an event, but we’ll be having a pop-up shop for Commune San Francisco’s event at Elbo Room on Wednesday. It’s completely FREE and we’ll be setting up shop on the 2nd floor along with other designers, bands and DJs. Come through!
