Fashion and Wisdom from Chinatown's Most Stylish Seniors
Chinatown Pretty features beautiful portraits and heartwarming stories of trend-setting seniors across six Chinatowns. Andria Lo and Valerie Luu have been interviewing and photographing Chinatown's most fashionable elders on their blog and Instagram of the same name since 2014. Chinatown Pretty is a signature style worn by pòh pohs (grandmas) and gùng gungs (grandpas) everywhere, but it's also a life philosophy, mixing resourcefulness, creativity and a knack for finding joy even in difficult circumstances. Photos span Chinatowns in San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City and Vancouver. The style is a mix of modern and vintage, high and low, handmade and store-bought clothing. Chinatown Pretty shares nuggets of philosophical wisdom and personal stories about immigration and Chinese-American culture.
