AsianInNY 2012 Lunar New Year Celebration and Fashion Show

Thank you all for coming out and supporting our 2012 Lunar New Year Celebration and Fashion Show.  If you missed it, check this amazing coverage from New York TV8:

AsianInNY hosted our 4th Fashion Shows in time for New York Fashion Week.  As a perennial favorite, this year’s fashion shows have gotten bigger and better.

The Lunar New Year is a joyous occasion of enormous proportions in Asian culture. To celebrate, people surround themselves with good music, food, and company! MC of the night Victor Chu provided laughs throughout the night. In line with Chinese tradition, Gao’s Kung Fu Academy showed feats of strength and awestruck audiences with a martial arts performance.

Also in the lineups included: thirteen-year old singer and dancer Nina Sophia Mojares, and famed cosplay J-pop singer Reni Mimura as well as Rima Strauss, the only non-Chinese who sings Chinese songs to large Chinese audiences around NY.

The spotlight falls on models showcasing amazing Asian designers, including Meiling Chen’s FEARLESS DREAMER Collection, menswear designer Ninh Nguyen’s NINH Collection, Charmaine Ho’s Me Char handbags, “String Theory” jewelry by Jing He, and Xing Xu’s Kallisti Jewelry. 30 Models also rocked tresses and looks with amazing hair and make-up provided by Haruo Noro Salon.

Also, Han Couture:  we are very lucky to have three special guest models: Baiyu (Vocalist) : Teresa Lee (PaperDoll band) : Le Zhang (Jazz singer) to showcase the beautiful Han Couture.

A successful fashion show takes a lot of preparation and hair/make-up is the key when beautiful models walk out the runway. No one sees how hard hair stylists and makeup artists work at the backstage. Our shout out to all the 7 Haruo Noro Salon hair stylists (Sausan Helou, Karen Skolski, Janet Juhami, Yukari Shirakawa, Yuka Inada, Viviana Briseno and Eddie Ngai) who started working at 4:30pm till 10pm on AsianInNY’s Fashion Shows.

Also, our sincere appreciation to the beautiful make-up artists Wenya Chang (lead make-up artist of Haruo Noro Salon), Haruka Tazaki, Magaly Cochachi and Mariko Tou who have helped AsianInNY’s numerous shows.  We can’t thank you enough to make us all look so pretty on the stage!
