I realize this is totally last minute (been BUSYYYY, it's been great) but if you follow me on twitter - if you do, I pity you for my incessant tweeting. Though it has gotten better, right? I WENT TO TWITTER REHAB! Kind of. Anyway - you'll realize I've been tweeting occasionally about this event.
Panel Discussion: Asian Americans in the Fashion Industry
Hosted by Columbia University's Asian Pacific American Awareness Month and Hoot Magazine
Columbia University's Asian Pacific American Awareness Month and Columbia University's first and only fashion publication, Hoot Magazine (hootmag.org), is hosting a mega-panel discussion with top Asian American figures in the fashion industry in order to promote the education and discussion of fashion and careers in fashion. In accordance to this year's theme, "Deeper," we hope to dive deeper into exploring the different ways in which Asian Americans have made revolutionary contributions.
