AAPI fashion


Sandy Liang is a Chinese American clothing designer who has risen in popularity in the last couple years. Her pieces are largely inspired by her upbringing in an AAPI immigrant household in New York, and have led the resurgence of femininity and nostalgia in fashion. As she is one of the few famous AAPI designers in the industry right now, Sandy Liang and her brand demonstrates the complex issues of diversity, inclusion, respectability politics, and tokenization.
