Anthony Lee choreographer

Thank you to author Wendy Shang for sending this my way. She is on her way to accept her APALA award for her wonderful middle grade chapter book The Great Wall of Lucy Wu. What do you think of the choreography? I asked my kids and they liked it a lot! Hey, if your middle schooler approves, then you know they are cool! These boys can dance! Nice choreography Mr. Lee!

My kids are really into this video and they had fun for an hour trying to copy the choreography! We all chose favorites. Music Lovers favors the middle guy. PickyKidPix and I like the 2nd from left denim guy. My little son likes the far left guy … perhaps because he’s the smallest. Ah, I hear the video being played right now!

This song was stuck in my head so I had to get it out of my system, and on the plus side, it was an excuse for me to try something new. I hope you enjoy the more…alternative…side of me? thanks for watching! [yea it’s a bit messy but whatever.]

George Nakashima: Woodworker, MIT Grad, Icon. Tue, 20 Mar 2012 08:23:43 +0000

“Furniture, we feel, is a development of mood besides being purely utilitarian. Basic forms with the reflection of the constancy of nature find satisfaction in times like ours.

A small poetic haven in an unsettled world where excitement seems so necessary.”

George Nakashima, from his 1962 Studio catalog

George Nakashima, Japanese American, furniture maker, artisan, George Nakashima coffee table


George Nakashima, Woodworker, is what his business card read. He’s that, and a whole lot more. “Today Nakashima is regarded as one the most important artisans of the American studio crafts movement.” from Primavera Gallery

“George Nakashima was born in Spokane, Washington in 1905 and grew up in the forests of the Olympic Peninsula. He received a Bachelor’s Degree in architecture at the University of Washington (although he enrolled in the University to study forestry and switched majors after two years) and a Master’s from MIT in 1930, as well as the Prix Fontainebleau from L’Ecole Americaine des Beaux Arts in France.

During the 1930’s Nakashima lived in Paris and from there he traveled to Japan to familiarize himself with his ancestral roots. It was in Tokyo that Nakashima joined Antonin Raymond’s firm which allowed him to work in Pondicherry, India, where he supervised the building of the dorms at the Sri Aurobindo ashram, a project which would have a profound impact on the designer. For this project Nakashima created his pieces of furniture.

At the start of World War II he headed back to the U.S. but not before returning to Japan where he met his future wife, Marion. Once back in the US, in 1941 (the same year that he married Marion), the couple settled in Seattle. In 1942, the year that his daughter Mira was born, Nakashima and his family were sent to the internment camps in Idaho. With Raymond’s help, Nakashima was able to get out but only after the architect promised that the designer would work for him on his farm in Bucks County, PA. It was here that Nakashima began his business and built his home and workshop, known as the Conoid studio. (“Conoid” is also the name of his very famous chairs from 1960).”  from Primavera Gallery

It was George Nakashima’s dream to provide “Altars of Peace” for each of the seven continents on earth. Constructed from a magnificent pair of matched Black walnut, the first “Peace Altar” was consecrated and installed at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City in 1986.

George Nakashima, Alters of Peace, Peace Table

The second Sacred Table, built to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations in 1995, was made from the same monumental black walnut tree as the first and blessed at the same Cathedral. After serving its mission as a unifying presence at The Hague Appeal for Peace in May of 1999, it resides in the newly renovated Russian Academy of Art in Moscow to help inspire peace in the new millennium.” from

Wood Tables

Slabs of reclaimed wood have a more contemporary feel to them when used as tables. Paired with sleek modern or contemporary chairs, this slab table recalls the designs of mid-century design master, George Nakashima. from Hewn and Hammered

Isamu Noguchi: One of 20th Century’s Most Acclaimed Sculptors and His Iconic Coffee Table UDPATED Tue, 13 Mar 2012 08:51:38 +0000

“The art of stone in a Japanese garden is that of placement. Its ideal does not deviate from that of nature… But I am also a sculptor of the West. I place my mark and do not hide.”

Noguchi Coffee Table for Herman Miller

“To limit yourself to a particular style may make you an expert of that particular viewpoint or school, but I do not wish to belong to any school,” he said. “I am always learning, always discovering.”

Thank you HapaMama for this great children’s book recommendation on Isamu Noguchi.

The East-West House: Noguchi’s Childhood in Japan by Christy Hale

“Isamu Noguchi was born Isamu Gilmour in Los Angeles in 1904 to Leonie Gilmour, an Irish-American teacher and editor, and Yone Noguchi, a Japanese poet. It is the cultural divide between his parents, between East and West, between two distinct histories of art and thought, that would engage him his entire life. In 1906, Noguchi’s mother took him to Japan, where he attended Japanese and Jesuit schools. While in Japan, Noguchi gained an appreciation for its landscape, architecture and craftsmanship. Later his mother sent him to Indiana to attend a progressive boarding school she had read about in a magazine.

After high school Noguchi enrolled in Columbia University to study medicine, while at the same time taking sculpture classes on the Lower East Side. It wasn’t long before he realized that art, not medicine, was his true calling. He left school and found a studio where he could sculpt full-time.” from PBS

Michelle Obama Supports Asian American and People of Color Fashion Designers Wed, 26 Oct 2011 08:06:00 +0000

Michelle Obama Doo.Ri JadeLuckClubThis is not an accident. Michelle Obama uses fashion to make a statement. That statement is that she supports fashion designers of color, particularly those who are up and coming. In fact, by wearing people of color designs, Michelle Obama’s star power elevates them into the limelight, which is the power of a First Lady’s fashion statement if you consider Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

All images from New York Magazine, The Cut.

p.s. Did I leave out any people of color fashion designers? If so, can you please leave me a comment and I’ll add. Thank you!

Top 10: Best Asian American Fashion Designers. Who Will be Next? UPDATED Wed, 07 Sep 2011 08:31:14 +0000

Joseph Altazarra Lily Kwong JadeLuckClub Best Asian American fashion designers

The newest Asian American Fashion Wunderkind is Joseph Altazarra. His ethnicity is a bit under the radar but he’s half French-Basque (father) and half Chinese American (mother). It’s a good looking combination! He studied art history at Swarthmore College then interned for Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler and Givenchy despite not having a formal fashion education. It helps that he runs with NYC It Girls like his cousin and model Lily Kwong, “Lauren Santo Domingo, the Vogue editor, and Vanessa Traina, who walked in his spring show.” NY Times Blog

Joseph Altuzarra JadeLuckClub Top 10 Asian American Fashion DesignersJoseph Altazarra Lily Kwong JadeLuckClub Best Asian American fashion designers

His clothes are known for Body-Con chic with an edgy twist.

altuzarra collections jadeluckclub asian american fashion designer best up and comingJoseph Altazurra collection Asian American Fashion Designer JadeLuck


The first eight designers are from the U.S. Embassy site and I added two more favorites. Thank you to my friend Ginny for sending me this link!

“Asian-American designers are a major force in the global fashion industry, as the New York Times recently noted. In this group are Vera Wang, Anna Sui and other established figures, plus relative newcomers such as Jason Wu and Thakoon Panichgul (both of whom are favorites of U.S. first lady Michelle Obama). Each designer has a distinctive aesthetic, reflecting the deep Asian-American talent pool in fashion and other fields. Here, models show off evening wear by Monique Lhuillier, a Filippina-turned-Californian.”

Asian American designers are rocking it. Who will be the next Big Thing? Can you suggest some under-the-radar Asian designers? Let’s discover them together!


1. Thakoon Panichgul

Known for gorgeous prints and COLOR, Thakoon is a line that says “happy!”

Thakoon Panichgul JadeLuckClub Top Asian Fashion Designers Best Fall Fashion

2. Monique Lhuillier

Her gowns grace red carpets and A Listers and her bridal collection is sought after by socialites.

3. Jason Wu

Dressing Michelle Obama put him firmly on the fashion map, but his flowy, feminine and flattering creations are what makes his line go supernova. His studded-on-the-bottom handbags are also the newest It Bag.

4. Alexander Wang

Alexander Wang is Downtown NY cool. I love his looks but I am not cool enough to pull them off. Working on it!

Alexander Wang top best asian american designer jadeluckclub Celebrating Asian American Creativity

5. Anna Sui

With a funky boho vibe, Anna Sui is pure fun. I bought a dress from her capsule Target collection that gets a lot of compliments. No one can believe I bought it for $4o! Her own line is even nicer.

6. Phillip Lim

He started his own company at only age 31 (hence the 3.1) and he’s a runaway wunderkind commercial success. He hits all the right notes, season after season.

Philip Lim top asian american fashion designer jadeluckclub Jade Luck Club

7. Vera Wang

Her dad is a gazillionaire industrialist and her mom is a Tiger Mom. Known for her prodigious work ethic, Vera Wang is a runway and “for the masses” big-time success. Her Tiger Mom should be proud!

8. Derek Lam

To me, he’s the Asian Michael Kors known for lux casual. I can’t afford him but I have been coveting his clothes for more than a decade.

derek lam michael kors jadeluckclub top asian american fashion designer

9. Prabal Gurung

He strikes the right balance of flouncy and tailored. If you can’t afford him, he did a nice capsule collection for J. Crew. There is still a little bit left.

Prabal Gurung Best Asian American Fashion Designer JadeLuckClub

10. Doo Ri

She understands drape more than any other designer, except, maybe for Donna Karan who famously failed that class in design school. Her clothes are lux, louche and gorgeous. I want!

Doo Ri top asian american fashion designers jadeluckclub jade luck club

Honorable Mention

Vivienne Tam

She creates very wearable clothes for real women, particularly those in the workforce.

Peter Som


Peter Som describes his aesthetic as one of “effortless elegance and refined sexiness”, and aspires to provide a fresh perspective to modern American fashion.

The Amazing and Talented Chan Luu: Fashion, Jewelry and Scarf Designer Mon, 09 May 2011 08:30:51 +0000

Chan Luu amazing wraparound bracelets JadeLuckClubI was doing social media marketing for a Warehouse sale at an exclusive women’s boutique when I came across Chan Luu again! I had read about her years ago how she bopped over from China, set up shop creating amazing pleated scarves with even more amazing sell through. I wasn’t in the market for expensive scarves back then so she fell off my radar.

But then I see these amazing wraparound bracelets and hear that they are all the rage where I live, and they are by … wait for it, Chan Luu. Does she have uncanny fashion sense or what?! And how is this possible if you grew up in mainland China?

So, I am forced to investigate (and also hope to score an interview with her at some point … any of you readers happen to know her?).

This is what I discover:

  • She has a fashion line AND it’s cute stuff (sort of Ella Moss meets Anna Sui).
  • She has a blog and it’s great!
  • She’s actually from Vietman.
  • And here is her bio … (via

Chan Luu left Vietnam, where she was born and raised, to further her education at Boston University in Massachusetts majoring in Business Administration. Following her dream of becoming a designer, she later moved to Los Angeles and enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising earning a degree in Fashion Design in 1975.

Chan’s pieces have been featured in VogueElleGlamourHarper’s Bazaar andInStyle. Her designs have been worn by celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston,Mischa BartonSandra BullockChristina AguileraBritney SpearsDrew BarrymoreJanet Jackson. Chan is an avid tennis player and scuba diver. She also enjoys gardening and cooking for her friends. She currently resides in Pacific Palisades with her dogs, Henry and Benji.

Is Chan Luu all the rage in your circle? What do you think of her designs?
