This May, in celebration of the unique and expansive
contributions made by Asian-Pacific Americans, Macy's will
launch its "Celebrates You" events, a series of in-store
gatherings that showcase Asian-Pacific American influences
in fashion and style. These special events are geared
towards celebrating historic achievements, empowering
participants and highlighting success stories.
Macy's Celebrates You events will consist of cocktail
receptions featuring informal discussions on Asian-Pacific
American heritage and success stories moderated by local
media personalities, as well as fashion presentations
highlighting Asian-American designers and Spring trends. The
events will take place at five key Macy's stores nationwide
including stores in New York, Houston, Chicago, San
Francisco and Los Angeles.
The fashionable and informative fun begins with a
discussion moderated by a local media personality with
invited leaders. The conversations will include the
panelist's stories of success and how they achieved it, the
impact and influence that Asian- American designers have had
on the industry, as well as the evolution of Asian-Pacific
American fashion, style and beauty. Local stylists will then
take participants to the runway for a fashion presentation
featuring models from the National Association of
Asian-American Professionals. Empowering participants
through their choice of wardrobe and presentation is part of
the fabric of Macy's Celebrates You events. In addition to
the fashion show, participants can get helpful makeup tips
from Shiseido who will be on hand for tutorials and
one-on-one consultations at each event.
"Asian-Pacific Americans have had a tremendous impact on
our nation and we are proud to celebrate these achievements
with all of our Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month events
nationwide. It's important to note that many of the best
fashion designers in the industry come from this community.
From Anna Sui who was first launched at Macy's to breakouts
like Twinkle by Wenlan, Asian-Pacific American designers
have made a indelible mark on fashion," said Martine
Reardon, Macy's executive vice president of marketing.
Attendees to Macy's Celebrates You events will receive a
free 15% off one-day savings pass. In addition, with any
purchase of $75 or more customers will receive a special
Macy's "Celebrates You" umbrella*.
